House Judiciary Cmte Receives 10,000s of Documents in Trump Probe

HeadlineMar 19, 2019

The House Judiciary Committee said it received tens of thousands of documents from some of the 81 individuals and groups contacted as part of the committee’s sweeping probe into President Trump and his businesses over possible obstruction of justice, corruption and other crimes and abuses of power. The committee did not reveal specifically who handed over records, but Judiciary Chair Jerrold Nadler told MSNBC on Monday that former Trump campaign adviser Stephen Bannon was one of the people who handed over “a few thousand” documents.

Meanwhile, The Daily Beast is reporting that Trump’s legal team told Congressmember Nadler they would not be handing over any requested documents. The House panel has said they would likely issue subpoenas to anyone who refused to comply with their request.
