Eighty-one people, agencies and organizations were named by the committee as recipients of document requests, including Trump's adult sons, Donald Jr. and Eric, as well as his son-in-law, Jared Kushner, who is Ivanka's husband and a White House adviser.

Asked if Ivanka Trump could conceivably be on the next list of people from whom information is sought, the Democratic lawmaker told CNN: "Conceivably certainly, I can't say".

The aggressive, broad investigation could set the stage for impeachment, although Democratic leaders have pledged to investigate all avenues and review special counsel Robert Mueller's report before taking drastic action.

The information gathered by the Judiciary Committee, along with that in the yet-to-be-released report by special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation of Trump campaign links to Russian Federation and obstruction allegations, could form the basis of impeachment proceedings against Trump.

The chairmen of the House Intelligence, Foreign Affairs and Oversight committees wrote to the White House and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo seeking documents and interviews with personnel about Trump's conversations with Putin.

"All the people on the list have given information already", Nadler said, either to Special Counsel Robert Mueller for his probe of alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election or to federal prosecutors for the Southern District of NY in their corruption probe.

"Personally I think he has", he replied, "but we have to, we have to look and see".

Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee are coming for President Donald Trump. "I cooperate all the time with everybody", he said, adding: "You know the attractive thing?"

Sen. Mark Warner, the top Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee, told CNN that after hearing Cohen's testimony, "We've got to dig deeper" about the extent to which Trump pursued construction of a skyscraper in Moscow during the 2016 campaign even as he told voters he was not involved in any Russian business deals.

"These allegations, if true, raise profound national security, counterintelligence, and foreign policy concerns, especially in light of Russia's ongoing active measures campaign to improperly influence American elections", the chairmen wrote.

Adam Burniston's Forecast | Tracking a potential winter storm this weekend
The next storm will also be quite progressive and it will contain more moisture and energy so I am expecting a bigger production. More than 40 feet (13 meters) of snow already has fallen this winter at the top of some ski resorts around Lake Tahoe.

In a request sent to the White House, the committee asks for information surrounding former FBI Director James Comey's termination, communications with Justice Department officials, the Trump Tower meeting and multiple other matters. "The (White House) Counsel's Office and relevant White House officials will review it and respond at the appropriate time".

Trump maintains that his campaign did not collude with Russian Federation and has repeatedly attacked the investigation on Twitter. He emerged empty-handed from a high-profile summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un on denuclearisation, and Mr Trump's former personal lawyer Michael Cohen, in three days of congressional evidence, publicly characterised the president as a "conman" and "cheat".

Nadler said Sunday on ABC's "This Week", the Democrats are simply doing "our job to protect the rule of law" after Republicans during the first two years of Trump's term were "shielding the president from any proper accountability".

The evidence gathered in the investigation would be the basis of a possible impeachment proceeding, which the Judiciary Committee would lead, though Nadler has said it's too soon to be discussing impeachment.

House Democrats took a major step in that direction Monday.
