NPR’s Steve Inskeep hosts the program, which unpacks the House inquiry, the case against the president as it is understood so far, the president’s defense, and the players offering the most important testimony.

At the center of the inquiry is a whistle blower’s complaint about the president’s actions on a call to the president of Ukraine. 

Did the president abuse his power when he asked for investigation into a political rival? Inskeep, along with other NPR journalists, steps through the story.
