Democratic lawmakers are examining whether there are grounds to impeach Republican President Donald Trump based on a whistleblower’s account that said Trump asked Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy in a July 25 phone call to help investigate Democratic presidential front-runner Joe Biden.

Where we are now

The Democratic-led House of Representatives initiated an impeachment inquiry against Trump after the whistleblower raised concerns that Trump tried to use nearly $400 million in U.S. aid as leverage in his conversation with Zelenskiy about a Biden investigation. Testimonies are underway as witnesses appear before House committees.

How we got here

This is a chronological accounting of events starting with the initial call that led to the impeachment inquiry.

U.S. President Donald Trump calls Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy.

After congratulating Zelenskiy on his recent election, Trump appeared to pressure him to investigate the activities of former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter. In addition to investigating the Bidens, Trump urged him to locate and turn over servers used by the Democratic National Committee and otherwise assist in “uncovering that allegations of Russian interference in the 2016 Presidential election originated in Ukraine,” and to meet or speak with his personal attorney Rudy Giuliani and Attorney General William Barr, according to the whistleblower report.
