Fiona Hill, the White House's former top Russian Federation adviser, is expected to speak to House investigators behind closed doors Monday about how the administration's approach to Ukraine was affected by President Donald Trump's lawyer Rudy Giuliani's efforts to have the country investigate the son of former vice president Joe Biden.
Mulvaney also took part in the "rogue operation with legal implications".
The White House demanded Hill limit her testimony to the contents of the 25 July telephone call and warned she could not discuss internal deliberations or diplomatic communications about the conversation, according to a letter dated Monday from a White House lawyer to Hill's attorney that was seen by Reuters.
Ms Yovanovitch said she was "incredulous" at being dismissed by President Trump in May.
Her testimony came after allegations that Trump pushed Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate the Bidens in a July 25 phone call, which sparked an impeachment inquiry by the House of Representatives. The request included information about the efforts by any current or former Trump administration officials - as well as the president's personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, and newly indicted Soviet-born Florida-based businessmen Lev Parnas and Igor Furman - to investigate matters related to Burisma Holdings, former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, Hunter and Joe Biden, the Democratic National Committee, Hillary Clinton and former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Marie "Masha" Yovanovitch.
Mr Trump has questioned the patriotism of the whistleblower, who filed a complaint after the Zelensky call, saying Mr Trump was improperly using the power of his office to solicit interference in the 2020 election from a foreign country.
Democratic Representative Jamie Raskin told reporters Hill, who spoke to the House Intelligence Committee and two other panels, "was a remarkably thorough and authoritative witness" who recalled "particular events and particular meetings". "Our first order of business was to agree that we must have a bipartisan, bicameral joint resolution to overturn the President's risky decision in Syria immediately", Pelosi wrote in a tweet, adding that Congress must also pass a "stronger sanctions package than what the White House is suggesting".

Michael McKinley, a former top aide to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo who resigned last week, is scheduled to testify Wednesday.
The Trump administration's removal in May of Marie Yovanovitch as United States ambassador to Ukraine may have figured in Hill's testimony. He's expected to tell Congress that a text message released earlier this month reassuring another envoy that there was no quid pro quo in their interactions with Ukraine was based exclusively on what Trump told him, according to a person familiar with his coming testimony.
As they have done in the past, Republican lawmakers who have shown little inclination to remove Trump complained that the hearings were closed to the public and that transcripts were not being released.
Hill left the Trump administration shortly before the July call with Zelensky.
