White House acting chief of staff Mick Mulvaney is holding a press briefing at the White House on Thursday.

The topic has not been announced, but Mulvaney is facing reporters amid a slew of depositions in the House impeachment inquiry and growing tension between Congress and the White House about President Trump's decision to pull U.S. troops out of Syria.

Mulvaney has reportedly been named in at least one deposition this week as having replaced key diplomats with three men who were more amenable to White House efforts to push Ukraine for an investigation into former Vice President Joe Biden.
