Committee to Request Trump Documents

WASHINGTON (AP) -- The chairman of the House committee that would be in charge of impeachment says the committee will request documents on Monday from more than 60 people from President Donald Trump's administration, family and business as it begins investigations.

Democratic Rep. Jerrold Nadler of New York says the House Judiciary Committee's inquiries are intended "to present the case to the American people about obstruction of justice, corruption and abuse of power."

Nadler isn't calling the inquiry an impeachment investigation but tells ABC's 'This Week" that House Democrats now in the majority are simply doing "our job to protect the rule of law" after Republicans during the first two years of Trump's term were "shielding the president from any property accountability."

He says "we're far from making decisions" about impeachment.
