The inquiry is centered on a July 25 call during which Trump asked Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to look into former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden's business dealings in Ukraine. Trump also asked Kiev to assist in an investigation into 2016 election interference.

Democrats are investigating, among other things, whether the Trump administration held up security aid to Ukraine in order to press for investigations sought by Trump.
