Stephen Colbert kicked off Tuesday night’s monologue on The Late Show by recapping Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman’s testimony on day three of the House impeachment hearings. Vindman, a top Ukraine expert on the National Security Council, was one of the officials who listened in on President Trump’s July 25 call with the president of Ukraine.
