Rep. Nadler 'Encouraged' by Docs Received in Trump Probe

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., says he is encouraged by the tens of thousands of documents his committee has received from many of the 81 individuals and entities as part of his sweeping investigation of President Donald Trump, his associates and members of his administration.

"I am encouraged by the responses we have received since sending these initial letters two weeks ago," Nadler said in a statement posted to his press site. "It is my hope that we will receive cooperation from the remainder of the list, and will be working to find an appropriate accommodation with any individual who may be reluctant to cooperate with our investigation."

Nadler announced the broad investigation in early March and said it would cover "three main areas," including public corruption, obstruction of justice, and abuses of power by the president, his associates, and members of his administration. The committee sent letters to 81 people and entities – including the Justice Department, White House, senior campaign officials, Trump Organization officials, and Trump's sons.

Evidence gathered in the probe would be the basis of a possible impeachment proceeding, though Nadler has said it is too soon to discuss impeachment.
