Summary

Nadler, D-NY, also said his committee, which would lead any impeachment effort against Trump, will request documents from more than five dozen people in the president's circle, including his son Donald Trump Jr. and top Trump Organization executive Allen Weisselberg.Trump has for nearly two years angrily complained about Mueller's ongoing probe of Russian election tampering and of possible collusion by the Trump campaign in that interference, as well as possible obstruction of justice by the president.Trump denies any wrongdoing.Since being appointed special counsel in spring 2017, Mueller has obtained guilty pleas to a range of crimes from mulitple people who worked for Trump or his campaign: Cohen, former national security advisor Michael Flynn, former campaign chair Paul Manafort, ex-campaign and inaugural official Rick Gates, and former foreign policy advisor George Papadopolous.Mueller earlier this year charged Trump friend Roger Stone with lying to Congress and other crimes.No judge has found Mueller's probe or resultant criminal cases to be illegal, despite the president's claims that the investigation is not legal.Since Trump has been president, he has appointed two attorney generals to head the Justice Department, Jeff Sessions and William Barr, and acting attorney general, Matt Whitaker.
