House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler asked House panels investigating President Donald Trump to share impeachment documents Thursday.
Nadler requested the documents in a Thursday letter to Democratic California Rep. Adam Schiff, Democratic California Rep. Maxine Waters, Democratic Maryland Rep. Elijah Cummings, and Democratic New York Rep. Elliot Engel.
The House Judiciary Committee Chairman asks in the letter that committees provide any information, documents, testimony, transcripts, or depositions relevant to the impeachment investigation.
The letter also mentions that the House Judiciary panel is considering whether impeachment is warranted.
Nadler’s letter comes one day after Trump’s attorneys said that the Intelligence and Financial Services committees cannot use the possibility of impeachment to get access to Trump’s financial information – information held by Deutsche Bank and Capital One, according to Politico.
But the letter indicates that all information obtained by committees investigating Trump may be relevant to the probe.
“In fact, the House Committee on the Judiciary is investigating whether to recommend articles of impeachment against President Trump,” Nadler wrote in the letter.
Trump’s attorneys have said that only the Judiciary Committee has jurisdiction over impeachment, while Republicans on the Judiciary Committee have pointed out that the panel has yet to formally invoke impeachment and there has not yet been an official vote on this matter, according to Politico.
Prior presidential impeachment probes have set a precedent of voting on formally invoking impeachment, the publication reports.
