"I’m not going to answer why any particular person is or isn’t on it. We think that anybody on it has information of use to the committee in establishing things," Nadler said on CNN's "OutFront."
Nadler said the 81 people and entities identified in a list released earlier in the day had previously provided information to the special counsel's office, the Southern District of New York or other officials.

Asked if Ivanka Trump could be added to the list in the future, Nadler said, "quite conceivably."

The investigation will focus on three key areas, Nadler said: obstruction of justice, public corruption and abuses of power.
Trump, who over the weekend railed against Democratic oversight efforts, said Monday that he cooperates "all the time with everybody," when asked if he would comply with Nadler's requests. He went on to decry the investigation as a "hoax."
Nadler defended his committee's actions, arguing it's part of the panel's constitutional duty to conduct oversight.
"We’re simply exercising our oversight jurisdiction, and he doesn’t understand it, or he’s not willing to concede to Congress that we have an oversight jurisdiction," Nadler said.
He reiterated that he believes Congress is still "far from" impeachment proceedings. Nadler would oversee such proceedings as chairman of the Judiciary Committee.
