House Judiciary to request documents from Trump Jr., dozens more

'Very Clear' That Donald Trump 'Obstructed Justice,' House Judiciary Chair Says

However, the committee chairman vowed to "initiate proper investigations" of Trump, which he accused his Republican colleagues of shielding the president from while the GOP had control of the House.

"We may or we may not get there", the representative said, "but what we have to do is protect the rule of law".

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler on Sunday said Democrats will do whatever it takes to reveal the results of special counsel Robert Mueller's probe and will request documents from dozens of people close to the White House this week, though he downplayed talk of impeaching President Trump.

Still, Nadler expressed hesitation about about pursuing impeachment against the president, telling Tapper Democrats "don't have all the evidence" to justice that action.

Only two US presidents - Andrew Johnson (1868) and Bill Clinton (1998) - have been impeached in the 242-year history of the American Republic.

As special counsel Robert Mueller wraps up his Russian Federation probe, federal investigators have focused on conflicting public statements by President Trump and his team that could be seen as an effort to influence witnesses and obstruct justice, people familiar with the investigation told CNN. The Wall Street Journal reports that Trump's son Eric, his daughter Ivanka, his son-in-law Jared Kushner and his former White House chief of staff John Kelly are also going to be the targets of document requests.

"There's no collusion, so they want to build something else", McCarthy said, adding that Nadler "decided to impeach the President the day the President won the election". "It's very clear that the president obstructed justice", he continued.

"No, we have to do the investigations and get all of this".

Trump has denied his campaign worked with Moscow. We don't have the facts yet.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has kept calls for impeachment at bay by insisting that Mr Mueller first must be allowed to finish his work, and present his findings publicly - though it's unclear whether the White House will allow its full release.

While the Mueller investigation is focused on specific crimes, Congress' probes will cast a wider net, Nadler said.

A spokesman for the Judiciary Committee declined to comment.

But Cohen's hearing before the House Judiciary Committee last week piqued congressional Democrats' interest in hearing from Weisselberg, as Cohen said the Trump Organization official had insight into Trump's tax filings.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D, said that she would await Mueller's findings, as well as a Justice Department investigation based in NY that is probing allegations that Trump paid hush money to two women to hide affairs, before determining whether the President should be impeached.
