Closed Door Testimony Saturday         11/16 09:36

   House impeachment investigators are hearing from a White House budget 
official in closed-door testimony at the Capitol.

   WASHINGTON (AP) -- House impeachment investigators are hearing from a White 
House budget official in closed-door testimony at the Capitol.

   Lawmakers convened Saturday to interview Mark Sandy. He's the first official 
from the Office of Management and Budget to defy President Donald Trump's 
instructions not to testify. Like other witnesses in the investigation, Sandy 
was expected to receive a congressional subpoena to appear.

   Investigators are eager to hear from Sandy as they scrutinize the 
administration's decision to withhold military aid from Ukraine.

   The holdup of that assistance came as Trump was asking Ukraine's new 
president to investigate Democrats and Trump political rival Joe Biden. That 
request is central to the impeachment inquiry. Trump says he did nothing wrong.

   More public hearings in the House are scheduled for this coming week.
