Nadler's Judiciary panel launched a wide-ranging probe into Trump's family and administration in March. The inquiry will focus on possible obstruction of justice, public corruption and abuses of power. 

Nadler on Thursday also pushed back on White House demands that he terminate investigations into the administration related to the Mueller report. 

"As a threshold matter, your failure to comprehend the gravity of the Special Counsel’s findings is astounding and dangerous," he wrote to White House counsel Pat Cipollone on Thursday. "The Mueller Report found that Russia interfered in our elections and outlined our nation’s acute vulnerability to another attack. The Special Counsel also found that the President engaged in multiple acts to exert undue influence over law enforcement investigations."
