Trump's sons and scores of others receive document requests from House committee

Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee investigating President Trump over allegations of obstruction of justice, corruption and abuse of power issued document requests Monday to his two eldest sons, Donald Trump Jr. and Eric Trump, as well as to his son-in-law, Jared Kushner.

The document requests sent to Trump’s kin are among 81 subpoenas issued by the House panel. Rep. Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., chairman of the Judiciary Committee, announced the request for documents Monday and gave the recipients two weeks to comply with the request.

“Over the last several years, President Trump has evaded accountability for his near-daily attacks on our basic legal, ethical and constitutional rules and norms,” Nadler said in a statement. “Investigating these threats to the rule of law is an obligation of Congress and a a core function of the House Judiciary Committee.”

Asked Monday whether he would cooperate with the Judiciary Committee document requests to the White House, his presidential campaign and businesses, the president replied: “I cooperate all the time with everybody.”

Having retaken control of the House of Representatives following the 2018 midterm elections, Democrats have shown little hesitation about exercising their oversight role. Last week, the new chairman of the House Oversight Committee, Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., marked the opening of testimony by Trump’s former lawyer Michael Cohen with a rebuke for the Republicans who once controlled it.

“Ladies and gentlemen, the days of this committee protecting the president at all costs are over,” Cummings said.

With Democrats now able to subpoena records and testimony from Trump’s family members and business associates, the president has done his best to portray the investigations as partisan overreach.
