On Tuesday, Kurt Volker, former special envoy to Ukraine testified before lawmakers as well as Lt. Col. Alexander S. Vindman, an officer with the National Security Council. When Vindman was asked if it was normal for Giuliani to be involved in foreign affairs, he said:
‘I don’t know if I have experience to say that, but it certainly wasn’t helpful and it didn’t help advance U.S. national security interests.’
Trump flew on Twitter again on Tuesday after another loaded impeachment hearing, claiming desperately that “in the end we will win” and said that the whole thing was a coup.

The rest of the Twitter world didn’t seem to agree with the president’s delusions.
Last Wednesday, conservative evangelical pastor Franklin Graham, son of the late evangelist Billy Graham, who is a staunch Trump supporter, posted on Facebook:
‘It’s a day of shame for America. The media is calling the Democratic-led impeachment inquiry “historic;” and it is—historically shameful.’
At this point, Mr. Trump can do nothing but try to shame and blame Democrats for his situation although lawmakers have already heard much damning testimony.
In his opening statement, Lt. Col. Vindman said:
‘It is improper for the president of the United States to demand a foreign government investigate a U.S. citizen and political opponent.’
According to The Los Angeles Times:
‘Vindman, one of the four witnesses testifying Tuesday, told lawmakers that the twice contacted the top lawyer for the National Security Council, John Eisenberg, with concerns upon hearing demands that Ukraine investigate Trump’s potential 2020 rival Joe Biden and unfounded theories that Ukraine interfered in the 2016 U.S. election.’
