Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, questioned Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, an Army officer who works for the National Security Council, and Jennifer Williams, an aide to Vice President Mike Pence, on Nov. 19, in a public hearing as part of the impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump. During his questioning, Jordan asked Vindman to respond to former National Security Council aide Tim Morrison's deposition that mentioned concerns about Vindman's judgment, adding that some of his colleagues thought that he had leaked information to the media. In response, Vindman read the last evaluation from Fiona Hill, a former White House adviser on Russia, and Vindman's supervisor, that said Vindman was the "best Army officer I've worked with in my 15 years of government service" and "exercises excellent judgment."
Vindman and Williams both listened in on a July phone call in which Trump asked the president of Ukraine to investigate former vice president and 2020 presidential candidate Joe Biden and his son, Hunter.
