White House refused to provide documents to a nonpartisan congressional watchdog investigating U.S. President Donald Trump's decision to withhold US security aid to Ukraine, according to documents released on Thursday, CNN reports.

According to the letter of December 20, Miller, a senior associate counsel to the President, was responding to a request from the Government Accountability Office (GAO) seeking "factual information and legal views" about why the Ukraine aid had been held.

"The White House does not plan to respond separately to your letters," he wrote.

As we reported earlier, the U.S. Senate voted on Wednesday to approve rules governing the impeachment trial of President Donald Trump, including delaying a debate over whether to call witnesses until the middle of the trial. Reuters informed about that.

The Senate voted 53-47 to adopt the trial plan, which allows opening arguments from House lawmakers prosecuting the case to begin later.

Senate impeachment trial on Trump's potential removal from the office formally began on January 17.
