The U.S. House of Representatives' impeachment inquiry into whether President Donald Trump abused the power of his office to push the Ukrainian president to order an probe of a political rival has heard from a series of administration insiders over the past two weeks. At the center of the inquiry is a July 25 call in which Trump pressed Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zekenskiy to investigate former vice president Joe Biden, a leading candidate for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination, and his son Hunter Biden over their ties to a Ukrainian energy company. Trump has acknowledged many of the central facts related to the call, maintaining that none of it amounted to wrongdoing. Despite a White House declaration last week that the administration would not cooperate with an impeachment inquiry that it dismissed as a "kangaroo court," the three Democratic-led committees leading the probe have heard from a series of witnesses. Below are highlights of the testimony so far:
