The House Intelligence Committee, led by Chairman Adam Schiff a Democrat from California, released a draft report of its key findings in the impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trum.

The inquiry was kickstarted by a whistleblower complaint filed in August by a member of the intelligence community. The complaint centered in on a July 25 phone call between Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, where Trump mentions the Bidens and a debunked conspiracy about the 2016 election. In the complaint, the whistleblower registers concern over potential abuse of power from Trump, including, “pressuring a foreign country to investigate one of the President’s main domestic political rivals.”

The House Intelligence Committee began the inquiry with closed-door hearings and then multiple days of public hearings with key witnesses. The report documents the Democratic-led committees’ conclusions.

The report concluded that Trump “conditioned a White House meeting and military aid to Ukraine on a public announcement of investigations beneficial to his reelection campaign,” and “obstructed the impeachment inquiry by instructing witnesses and agencies to ignore subpoenas for documents and testimony.”

The inquiry now heads to the House Judiciary Committee, where public hearings begin on Wednesday, December 4.
