Vindman was fired from the NSC after testifying that he was concerned after listening in on a phone call between Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. Vindman's testimony was the central claim House Democrats pinned their articles of impeachment against Trump on: That Trump had used the power of his office to pressure the leader of a foreign government to dig up dirt on a political rival.  


Vindman served as the White House expert on Ukraine at the time of the call. 

Trump was eventually acquitted by the Senate on two counts, one of obstruction of Congress and another of abuse of power. 

“My family and I have had an extraordinary outpouring of support from people around the globe," Vindman said in a statement to the AP. "My hope is to offer my story as an affirmation that the American dream is alive and worth continuing to fight for."

Other witnesses who testified for Democrats against Trump have struck book deals of their own.
