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 ComeyChris Wallace on Yovanovitch testimony: 'If you're not moved, you don't have a pulse' Day one impeachment hearings draw 13.1M viewers, down 32 percent from Comey hearings There are poor ideas, bad ones and Facebook's Libra MORE.
