07:24

Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman discusses President Trump's relationship with Russian leader Vladimir Putin, telling Lester Holt that Putin has a "unique spell" on Trump. Vindman says he doesn't know the name of the whistleblower and that he was nonpartisan while working for the White House, but now considers himself a "never-Trumper." An NSC spokesperson responded, saying: “This is a disgruntled former detailee, seeking publicity, who is making allegations that are without merit.“
