The House and Senate intelligence committees found no evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation.

"It's very clear that the president obstructed justice", Nadler told ABC News on Sunday.

The broad requests from the House intelligence, Foreign Affairs and Oversight and Reform committees ask for the substance of Trump and Putin's conversations in person and by phone and for information on whether those conversations had any impact on US foreign policy.

FILE - Special counsel Robert Mueller, in charge of investigating Russian interference in the 2016 USA presidential election and possible collusion between Moscow and the Trump campaign, departs Capitol Hill, in Washington, June 21, 2017.

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".

"I think Congressman Nadler chose to impeach the president the day the president won the election", McCarthy said.

House Democrats say they have been careful to avoid conflicts with Mueller's investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. election and possible coordination with the Trump campaign, as well as federal probes being led by the U.S. Attorney's Office in Manhattan.

The panel also named the president's sons, Donald Trump Jr. and Eric Trump, White House aide and Trump son-in-law Jared Kushner, Trump Organization Chief Financial Officer Allen Weisselberg, former US Attorney General Jeff Sessions and former White House counsel Don McGahn.

Asked Monday if he would cooperate with the investigation, Trump said during a White House event, "I cooperate all the time with everybody".

The move all but guarantees that potentially damaging allegations will shadow the president for months to come as Democrats try to keep them in the public eye. No collusion. It's all a hoax.

Committee chairman Jerrold Nadler said the investigation will be focused on obstruction of justice, corruption and abuse of power. "It's a political hoax".

There are also people connected to Russian interference in the 2016 campaign, including participants in a meeting at Trump Tower with a Russian lawyer before the election.

The Judiciary Committee also is looking at whether Trump has used the White House for personal enrichment in violation of the Constitution's emoluments clause.

Representatives for the White House and Justice Department said the document requests were being reviewed.

The committee is also asking the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Justice Department and others for documents related to possible pardons for Trump's former personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, former national security adviser Michael Flynn and former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort.

Republicans in Congress accuse Democrats of pursuing an impeachment agenda against Trump as part of a political strategy to reclaim the White House in the 2020 election.

Warner said he will reach his decision on whether Trump colluded with Russian Federation to help him win the election after more investigation. Trump Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said the White House had received the letter and "the counsel's office and relevant White House officials will review it and respond at the appropriate time".

"We will act quickly to gather this information, assess the evidence and follow the facts where they lead with full transparency with the American people", Nadler said.

House Democrats took a major step in that direction Monday.
