Nadler asks other House chairs to provide records that would help panel in making impeachment decision

House Judiciary Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) is asking four other top committee leaders to share any documents or materials they think could be related to his committee’s investigation into possible obstruction and potential abuses of power by President Trump.

In a letter on Thursday, Nadler wrote to Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), Oversight and Reform Chairman Elijah Cummings (D-Md.), Financial Services Chairwoman Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) and Foreign Affairs Chairman Eliot Engel (D-N.Y.) to ask them to provide such information as Nadler’s committee weighs whether to introduce articles of impeachment against the president.

“I am writing to request information, including documents and testimony, depositions, and/or interview transcripts, that you believe may be relevant to the Judiciary Committee’s ongoing impeachment investigation relating to President Trump,” Nadler wrote. “I look forward to our Committees working together on this matter of the highest constitutional importance.”

Nadler said this request to pool information comes after the Judiciary and Intelligence panels agreed to share grand jury information if the committee wins its lawsuit seeking such materials. By asking other House investigators to share information, Nadler is expanding his probe to include more of the lower chamber.
