The documents, according to Senate Democratic Leader Charles Schumer (N.Y.), would relate to conversations and documents between President Trump, top administration officials and Ukraine on the delayed funding, which was eventually released in September.

"No one can argue that these documents are not directly related ... People should understand that the documents can shed as much light on why the aid was cut off, who did it," Schumer told reporters at a press conference ahead of the vote.
