The narrowed-scope of the questions, first obtained by Politico, are:
• Did the president request that a foreign leader and government initiate investigations to benefit the president’s personal political interests in the United States, including an investigation related to the president’s political rival and potential opponent in the 2020 US presidential election?
• Did the president — directly or through agents — seek to use the power of the Office of the President and other instruments of the federal government in other ways to apply pressure on the head of state and government of Ukraine to advance the president’s personal political interests, including by leveraging an Oval Office meeting desired by the president of Ukraine or by withholding US military assistance to Ukraine?
• Did the president and his administration seek to obstruct, suppress or cover up information to conceal from the Congress and the American people evidence about the president’s actions and conduct?
Schiff: GOP Must Justify Relevance of Its Witnesses
Schiff, chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, made his remarks in a letter to Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., the ranking member of the panel. In the letter, Schiff highlighted questions that will be used to determine whether a witness’s testimony is pertinent.
Those questions include whether President Donald Trump:
Requested “that a foreign leader and government initiate investigations to benefit the president’s personal interests.”
Sought to use his office “to apply pressure on the head of state and government of Ukraine to advance the President’s personal political interests.”
Looked to obstruct or cover up any evidence regarding his actions.
All the witnesses so far have only testified about their interpretation of the call
