House Judiciary Committee chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) said his committee has received tens of thousands of documents from many of the 81 individuals and entities contacted as part a sweeping probe of President Trump and his inner circle.

"I am encouraged by the responses we have received since sending these initial letters two weeks ago. It is my hope that we will receive cooperation from the remainder of the list, and will be working to find an appropriate accommodation with any individual who may be reluctant to cooperate with our investigation."
