WASHINGTON, Nov 3 — US President Donald Trump said today that more information would be released shortly about Alexander Vindman, the US official who told Congress he was concerned that Trump’s call with Ukraine’s leader threatened national security.

Vindman, a US Army lieutenant colonel and National Security Council official, has been targeted by Trump since his October 29 congressional testimony was released. Trump tweeted that day that Vindman was a “Never Trumper witness.”

Asked whether he regrets calling the Vindman a “Never Trumper,” Trump told reporters today, “Well, you’ll be seeing very soon what comes out and then you can ask the question in a different way.”

Vindman sat in on the July 25 call between Trump and Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelenskiy that spurred the House of Representatives’ impeachment investigation. — Reuters
