REP. JERROLD NADLER, CHAIR OF THE HOUSE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE.

The expansive request for documents from 81 individuals and entities by the House Judiciary is a who’s who of questionable characters and convicted criminals associated with Donald J. Trump. The mix also includes government agencies and corporations, both foreign and domestic.

The documents’ request extends to a familiar litany of names and can be broadly divided into three main categories: Trump Entities and Principals, the Trump Campaign and the Trump Administration. A number of individuals overlap categories. While both Trump sons are named, daughter Ivanka is absent. She is not overlooked though. As a heavy-handed organizer of Trump’s Inaugural Committee, Ivanka Trump will definitely come under the purview of the House Judiciary.

Representative Jerrold Nadler, the head of the Judiciary committee, says his committee’s call for documents will focus on campaign finance violations, corruption and abuse of power. Nadler explained that his job is to “protect the rule of law” and that “impeachment is a long way down the road.” However, those words bely the scope of the requests as they cover every aspect of Trump’s culpability and must inevitably build a case for impeachment.

Below are the individuals and entities with brief descriptions. Where warranted, I included a link or two for more information.
