Chairman Nadler Update on Initial 81 Document Requests as Part of House Judiciary Committee's Investigation into Threats Against the Rule of Law

Washington, DC, March 18, 2019

Two weeks ago, the House Judiciary Committee sent letters to 81 individuals, agencies, and entities requesting documents pertaining to the Committee's ongoing investigation into public corruption, obstruction of justice, and abuse of power by President Trump, his associates, and members of his Administration. The letters instructed that the document requests be answered by March 18.  At this point, the Committee has heard from a large number of the recipients, many of whom have either sent or agreed to send documents to the Committee. Those documents already number in the tens of thousands. The Committee continues to be in discussions with others, including some who have requested a subpoena from the Committee before they are comfortable supplying the information requested. 

"I am encouraged by the responses we have received since sending these initial letters two weeks ago," said Chairman Nadler. "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."
