SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — Presidential hopeful Kamala (KAH'-mah-lah) Harris and two of her Democratic Senate colleagues are trying to force the Trump administration to release documents related to the Ukraine investigation through the federal Freedom of Information Act.

Harris of California, Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut and Sheldon Whitehouse of Rhode Island will file an information request Wednesday with the Department of Justice. The request seeks documents related to Ukraine, China and Department of Justice investigations into President Donald Trump's political rivals.

The request comes as the U.S. House of Representatives seeks its own information via its impeachment inquiry.

As Harris tries to rise from the middle of the 2020 presidential pack to the top tier, the impeachment inquiry could offer her a fresh opportunity to garner attention.

Trump has denied doing anything wrong.
