Vindman testimony says White House pressured him to keep Ukraine call quiet

 

Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman told Congress that the White House pressured him to not discuss the call between President Trump and Ukrainian officials.

In his testimony, Vindman described his interactions with White House attorney John Eisenberg. He claimed that when he expressed concern about Trump’s call to Eisenberg, the attorney moved the call’s transcript to a private server usually used only for highly classified information, as the Washington Post reported Wednesday.

At the time, Vindman didn’t think it was a suspicious decision by Eisenberg to move the transcript to the classified server.

That feeling changed when Vindman returned two days later and was told by Eisenberg to stop discussing the call.
