House Judiciary Committee requests documents on Russia collusion

House Judiciary Committee request for documents

The House Judiciary Committee today requested documents from 81 people and entities. Many of the requests are directly related to Russia collusion, Russia interference with the 2016 election, financial involvement, emoluments, and other such stinky stuff. And, of course, these are not just requests. Anyone refusing to comply will find themselves in serious legal trouble.

The requests are meticulously documented and have full text of what is being requested. Russia is a central focus. Excerpts from the House Judiciary Committee requests follow and include Donald Trump Jr, Eric Trump, Jared Kushner, Erik Prince, Julian Assange, and the NRA.
