Who's hearing from House Democrats: Trump's family, business

Michael Cohen sues Trump Org alleging unpaid legal fees

Beginning a sweeping investigation that could shadow Trump as he runs for re-election, the panel sent letters to 81 people asking a flurry of questions about Trump's activities before and after he was elected president. He has produced a series of checks, paid monthly in 2017, that he received from the president, his son Donald Trump Jr., or his CFO Allen Weisselberg.

They also include White House ex-aides Steve Bannon and Hope Hicks, current Trump personal lawyer Jay Sekulow, former attorney general Jeff Sessions, and WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange.

Cummings opened the investigation into White House security clearances shortly after taking over as chairman of the committee.

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., sent a large documents request to the White House that signaled how broad the investigations could be. Though Special Counsel Robert Mueller may be nearing a final report, these congressional probes signal that scrutiny of Trump's business ties, policies and presidential campaign is far from over.

The information gathered by the Judiciary Committee, along with that in the yet-to-be-released report by special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation of Trump campaign links to Russian Federation and obstruction allegations, could form the basis of impeachment proceedings against Trump.

The letters demanded documents that could shed light on possible obstruction of justice and abuse of office by the administration and Trump himself.

Numerous people who receive requests were asked about hush money payments to porn actress Stormy Daniels, who alleged she had an affair with Donald Trump.

When asked by reporters if he will cooperate with the committee's investigation, Trump said he cooperates "all the time with everybody", but he added, "it's all a hoax".

Nadler told ABC on Sunday that Kelly also could be included.

But Trump's former lawyer Michael Cohen whetted Democrats' interest in obtaining the documents last week, when he testified before the House Oversight Committee that Trump avoided releasing his returns for fear he would be audited and penalized by tax authorities.

Trump's response points to his increasing frustration with Congress and his intention to seize on the investigations as evidence that he is under siege in Washington. The probe was taken over by Mueller. Trump denies the affair.

"This is a critical time for our nation, and we have a responsibility to investigate these matters and hold hearings for the public to have all the facts", Mr Nadler said in a statement.

The 81 names and entities on the Judiciary Committee's list touch all parts of Trump's life - the White House, his businesses, his campaign and the committee that oversaw the transition from campaign to presidency.

Representatives for the White House and Justice Department said the document requests were being reviewed.

Trump denounced the probe Tuesday, tweeting that Nadler and other Democrats "have gone stone cold insane".
