WASHINGTON - Some of President Donald Trump's closest advisers, including his daughter Ivanka, were missing from a list of people from whom Democratic lawmakers sought documents on Monday, but she could conceivably be targeted next, the committee chairman said.
While admitting there was no evidence yet uncovered to support the allegation that Trump has actually engaged in any criminal activity, Nadler asserted, "Our goal is to hold the administration accountable for the obstruction of justice, the abuse of power and the corruption". (The probe was started in 2017 and formally ended a year ago after its then-Republican leadership concluded there was no collusion between Russian Federation and the Trump campaign). To get to the point where those articles are written and approved by a Judiciary Committee majority (of Democrats and, ideally, constitutional-conservative Republicans), however, inquiries and investigations must proceed, hearings must be held, witnesses will nearly certainly have to be subpoenaed.
Wikileaks, and its founder Julian Assange, have also been sent documents requests by the committee. ABC's commentators are skeptical about this, claiming that Trump tweeted about pardons, but only very generally and nothing in direct or even indirect reference to the Mueller probe.

Their requests hone in on a number of actions by the president that might support this conclusion: the dismissal of Trump's national security aide Michael Flynn, the firing of Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey, and Trump's alleged pressure on attorney general Jeff Sessions and several senior Justice Department and Federal Bureau of Investigation officials seen as not loyal or hostile. "But we're going to initiate proper investigations ... there can be crimes that are impeachable offenses and impeachable offenses that are not crimes".
"We don't have the facts yet", Nadler said.
Hume said Nadler would be moving straight to impeachment proceedings if he possessed evidence of obstruction of justice.
It also will address accusations of campaign finance law violations and potential violations of the US Constitution's ban on foreign emoluments.
