Trump administration under the spotlight once again as Russian Federation investigation expands

House Judiciary Committee to request documents from dozens including Donald Trump Jr. to begin investigation into obstruction of justice

Donald Trump Jr. is among the individuals from whom the committee will request documents

Nadler said that the document requests, with responses to most due by March 18, are a way to "begin building the public record" and that the committee has the responsibility to investigate and hold public hearings.

President Trump says that he cooperates with "everybody" after House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler announced Monday that he had delivered a batch of document requests as a first step in his investigation into the president and his associates.

"We have seen the damage done to our democratic institutions in the two years that the Congress refused to conduct responsible oversight", Nadler said in a statement Monday. "The Counsel's Office and relevant White House officials will review it and respond at the appropriate time", she said.

Rep. Jerrold Nadler: "It's very clear that the president obstructed justice".

Meanwhile, Trump spoke for over two hours at the Conservative Political Action Conference in National Harbor, Maryland, Saturday, railing against Mueller's investigation into his 2016 campaign.

The chairmen of three House committees that are investigating the administration sent a letter to the White House about President Trump's conversations with Vladimir Putin and his reported attempts to keep the details on the down low.

House Democrats past year unsuccessfully sought to force Gross to testify about the summit, saying Trump's extraordinary actions required extraordinary measures in turn.

The Democratic chairmen also want to speak to White House employees, including translators, who have been part of their communications.

The three chairmen on Monday cited reports that Trump "seized notes pertaining to at least one meeting he held with President Putin" and directed an interpreter to not discuss with other U.S. officials the substance of the communications.

Among those receiving the requests would be Donald Trump Jr.

The committee also asked for documents from Allen Weisselberg, the Trump Organization's finance chief. He tried to-he fired-he tried to protect Flynn from being investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Warner said he will reach his decision on whether Trump colluded with Russian Federation to help him win the election after more investigation.
