US diplomat told an impeachment inquiry that he followed President Donald Trump’s orders to put pressure on Ukraine to investigate his Democratic rival, Joe Biden, according to BBC.
It is illegal in the US to seek foreign help to gain electoral advantage.
Mr Biden is one of the top contenders for the Democratic nomination for the 2020 presidential election.
If found guilty in a majority vote in the House, the Republican president will face an impeachment trial in the Senate. But two-thirds of members of that Republican-controlled chamber would then need to vote for Mr Trump to be removed from office.
