Democrats argue that military aid to Ukraine was held up for the purpose of convincing Ukraine's government to open the investigation, which they and a whistleblower's complaint assert was an improper attempt by the president to solicit foreign assistance in an election.

Multiple current and former administration witnesses have described an unofficial shadow diplomatic effort led by Giuliani on Kiev. A partial transcript released by the White House of a July 25 phone call showed Trump urging his Ukrainian counterpart to coordinate with Giuliani on the Biden probe.

Giuliani tweeted Wednesday that his work was done to counter "false charges" against his client, referring to Trump, stemming from the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election.
