Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, the director of European Affairs on the National Security Council, and Jennifer Williams, a top special adviser to Vice President Mike Pence, gave their opening statements Tuesday on day three of the impeachment hearings of President Donald Trump.

In their statements, each spoke about the July phone call that is at the centre of the inquiry and referred to it as "unusual" and they had concerns.

Vindman said out of a "sense of duty" he reported his concerns privately, and said it was "improper" for the U.S. president to demand a foreign government investigate a U.S. citizen and political opponent.
