House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y. wants four House panels investigating President Donald Trump to share documents and other information with his committee, Politico is reporting.
Nadler wants the documents to aid his panel’s probe into whether articles of impeachment should be filed against Trump, according to Politico.
Nadler made his request in a Thursday letter to Reps. Adam Schiff, chairman of the Intelligence Committee; Maxine Waters, chairwoman of the Committee on Financial Services; Elijah Cummings, who heads the Oversight Committee, and Eliot Engel, who oversees the Foreign Affairs panel.
“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 (Donald) Trump,” he said.
“As you know, the Judiciary Committee’s authority and intent to conduct an investigation to determine whether to recommend articles of impeachment has been manifested previously through a variety of means and on numerous occasions.”
And Nadler added: “I look forward to our committees working together on this matter of the highest constitutional importance.
