- Two Florida businessmen who are tied to Trump's lawyer and now face federal criminal charges were photographed with Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis at his election night victory party last November. Pence has not been subpoenaed but has been warned that refusal to cooperate could be interpreted as evidence of obstruction.
He is expected to discuss concerns held by career State Department officials about the treatment of the USA ambassador to Ukraine, Marie Yovanovitch, and others who worked on the Ukraine portfolio, according to a person familiar with his testimony.
Also on Tuesday, Rudy Giuliani, Trump's personal lawyer who has been at the center of the controversy and who has been requested for documents, refused to comply with Congress' demand as well.
WASHINGTON - The effort to pressure Ukraine for political help provoked a heated confrontation inside the White House last summer that so alarmed John R. Bolton, then the national security adviser, that he told an aide to alert White House lawyers, House investigators were told on Monday.
"Giuliani's a hand grenade who's going to blow everybody up", Ms. Hill quoted Mr. Bolton as saying during an earlier conversation. She said Bolton told her to tell the White House lawyer, "I [Bolton] am not part of whatever drug deal Sondland and Mulvaney are cooking up".
Giuliani had faced a Tuesday deadline to produce requested documents.
He and others in the administration, including Hill and Marie Yovanovitch, whom Trump removed as ambassador to Kiev last May and who testified in the impeachment inquiry on Friday, considered Trump's suspension of military aid to Ukraine and refusal to grant President Volodymyr Zelensky a White House meeting to be a political gift to Russian Federation and part of Trump's supposed softness toward Vladimir Putin.
One of the reasons the White House considers the impeachment proceedings illegitimate is the absence of a full House vote.
House Democrats on Tuesday interviewed a top State Department official responsible for Ukraine, George Kent, about his role between the White House, Giuliani and Kiev, and prepared to question three more diplomats this week.

Democrats have accused Trump of pressuring a vulnerable USA ally to dig up dirt on Biden after withholding $391 million in US security aid meant to help combat Russian-backed separatists in the eastern part of Ukraine.
Joe Biden has denied Trump's allegations of corruption.
Sondland is expected to be asked why he relayed from Trump to other diplomats that the president said no "quid pro quos" connecting the Biden investigation with the USA aid.
It's been almost a month since the White House released an official call summary of Trump's July 25 conversation with Zelensky, in which the American president was quoted saying, "T$3 here's a lot of talk about Biden's son, that Biden stopped the prosecution and a lot of people want to find out about that so whatever you can do with [Attorney General Bill Barr] would be great". Trump's allies are bemoaning what they say is a lack of due process in the Democratic impeachment investigation - but they often seem unable to effectively parry the damaging tidbits leaking out of depositions.

As talks continue over whether the whistleblower from within the US intelligence community who prompted the inquiry will testify, Trump weighed in on Twitter, demanding the person testify and the individual's identity be revealed.
On Friday, Yovanovitch testified she had been ousted based on "unfounded and false claims" after coming under attack by Giuliani.
