Only 8 of the 81 individuals and entities contacted by the House Judiciary Committee have submitted documents as part of their investigation into President Trump and his inner circle, Politico reported on Tuesday.

Details: The deadline to submit documents was March 18. Even though a small group of people submitted documents, committee chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) said they are expecting more to cooperate.

A grand total of 8,195 pages have been submitted to the committee:

  • Tom Barrack, chairman of the Trump Inaugural Committee: 3,349 pages
  • Steve Bannon, former Trump adviser: 2,688 pages
  • National Rifle Association, 1,466 pages
  • Rinat Akhmetshin, former Russian intelligence officer who attended the 2016 Trump Tower meeting: 467 pages
  • Trump Inaugural Committee, 104 pages
  • J.D. Gordon, former Trump campaign national security adviser: 51 pages
  • George Papadopoulos, former Trump campaign adviser: 47 pages
  • Sam Nunberg, former Trump campaign adviser: 23 pages

Others who plan to cooperate with the panel's inquiry include AMI, the parent company of the National Enquirer and Hope Hicks, a longtime Trump ally and former Trump White House communications director, per CNN.

  • An attorney for former Trump campaign adviser Rick Gates told lawmakers that prosecutors advised him not to cooperate with the committee's probe into Trump, according to a Politico report on Wednesday. But his attorney "left open the possibility of assisting the panel 'in the coming months,'" the news outlet notes.

AOC and Ilhan Omar want to block Biden’s former chief of staff

Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Ilhan Omar are boosting a petition against Joe Biden nominating his former chief of staff to a new role in his administration, calling Bruce Reed a "deficit hawk” and criticizing his past support for Social Security and Medicare cuts.

Why it matters: Progressives are mounting their pressure campaign after the president-elect did not include any of their favored candidates in his first slate of Cabinet nominees, and they are serious about installing some of their allies, blocking anyone who doesn't pass their smell test — and making noise if they are not heard.

Butterball CEO Jay Jandrain talks turkey

Butterball estimates that it sells one out of every three Thanksgiving turkeys, but knows that this year's celebrations will be different than years past.

Axios Re:Cap talks with the turkey giant's CEO Jay Jandrain about what people are buying, what they're asking the "Turkey Talkline" and what the pandemic has meant for his business.

Biden introduces top national security team

President-elect Joe Biden's nominee for Secretary of State Antony Blinken spoke Tuesday at an event introducing the incoming administration's top national security officials, where he told the story of his stepfather being the only one of 900 children at his school in Poland to survive the Holocaust.

What they're saying: "At the end of the war, he made a break from a death march into the woods in Bavaria. From his hiding place, he heard a deep rumbling sound. It was a tank. But instead of the iron cross, he saw painted on its side a five pointed white star," Blinken said.
