Days after Nadler’s request, Trump initially suggested he would be unwilling to comply with the document requests, citing what he said was former President Obama’s handling of congressional probes during his time in office.

“They didn't give one letter. They didn't do anything. They didn't give one letter of the requests,” he said.

He also called it a disgrace and said it was the beginning of the presidential campaign.

Kushner has also been asked to turn over any records related to the Trump Organization's discussions to build a Trump Tower in Moscow during the 2016 election, the publishing of hacked Democratic emails by WikiLeaks, hush money payments made to women alleging affairs with the president, contacts between the Trump campaign and Russia as well as events that unfolded within the administration, like the firing of former FBI Director James ComeyJames Brien ComeySpies are trying to influence the election — US spies, that is GOP former US attorneys back Biden, say Trump 'threat to rule of law' Biden's polling lead over Trump looks more comfortable than Clinton's MORE.

The panel is also asking Kushner to shed light on internal administration matters like Trump's contacts with his former acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker regarding topics like special counsel Robert MuellerRobert (Bob) MuellerCNN's Toobin warns McCabe is in 'perilous condition' with emboldened Trump CNN anchor rips Trump over Stone while evoking Clinton-Lynch tarmac meeting The Hill's 12:30 Report: New Hampshire fallout MORE's investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election, as well as the Southern District of New York (SDNY), which is probing the hush money payments.

Democrats have voiced concern that the president installed Whitaker, who was seen as a Trump loyalist, in order to hinder or end Mueller's investigation. Whitaker vacated the position earlier this year after Attorney General William Barr was confirmed.
