WASHINGTON — Impeachment investigators on Tuesday asked President Trump’s acting chief of staff, Mick Mulvaney , to appear for a deposition this week as part of its inquiry into the president’s dealings with Ukraine.

House impeachment investigators have subpoenaed acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney, demanding that he testify about his knowledge of President Donald Trump’s decision to withhold military aid to Ukraine.

Mulvaney had already signaled he would likely refuse lawmakers’ demands to testify, and the White House has issued a blanket order against cooperating with the impeachment probe.
