The Wall Street Journal reports that Trump's son Eric, his daughter Ivanka, his son-in-law Jared Kushner and his former White House chief of staff John Kelly are also going to be the targets of document requests.
Al Jazeera's Andy Gallacher, reporting from Oxon Hill, Maryland said the conference "is really about Donald Trump energising his base".
"So now we're waiting for a report, and we'll find out who we're dealing with", Trump said, adding: "We're waiting for a report by people that weren't elected". Needless to say, nor can the fact that Trump's top campaign officials eagerly tried to conspire in that effort (which Trump subsequently tried to hide from the American people).
Members of the Trump family, key figures in the 2016 campaign, as well as past and present White House aides have all have been contacted by House Judiciary Chairman Jerold Nadler, a New York Democrat. The document requests are not taking place under the auspices of an official impeachment investigation.
Trump's fierce political campaign against what he calls Mueller's "Witch Hunt" and "hoax" investigation is apparently aimed at discrediting any conclusions that Barr choses to share with Congress and the public.
"Now Robert Mueller never received a vote and neither did the person who appointed him", the president said.
Top Democratic lawmakers vowed Sunday to step up their investigations of U.S. President Donald Trump and his connections to Russian Federation during the 2016 presidential election. After Cohen left, Schiff announced that the committee will hold an open hearing later this month with Felix Sater, a Russia-born executive who worked with Cohen on an ultimately unsuccessful deal to build a Trump Tower in Moscow.
President Trump assailed Michael Cohen as a "liar" on Sunday, but said that his former lawyer's congressional testimony earlier this week "proved" that there was no collusion between the campaign and Russian Federation.

Trump's campaign is being investigated by Special Counsel Robert Mueller for alleged collusion with Russian Federation to influence the 2016 election, and for possible obstruction of that probe.Many observers believe, however, his biggest legal exposure will come with the various federal and state-level investigations into his finances and the running of his charity foundation and business.
Trump specifically targeted 2020 Senator Warren of MA, claiming that he's destroyed her career such that she won't be the Democratic nominee he'll face in 2020.
"The whole thing's ridiculous", Ernstmeyer said. "Before you impeach somebody, you have to persuade the American public that it ought to happen".
The broad investigation could be setting the stage for an impeachment effort, although Democratic leaders have pledged to investigate all avenues and review Mueller's upcoming report before trying any drastic action.
Democratic presidential candidates so far have not focused on the investigation on the campaign trail. Some legal scholars have also argued that the president can not obstruct of justice by exercising his constitutional authority to fire a subordinate.
He mocked his former attorney general, Jeff Sessions, and former FBI Director James Comey, both of whom Trump fired.
"Over the last several years, President Trump has evaded accountability for his near-daily attacks on our basic legal, ethical, and constitutional rules and norms", Mr. Nadler said. "We're going to check" - these people are sick".

Ryan reportedly left the impression Cohen would cooperate with prosecutors investigating him if he could not rely on a pardon. The president's attorneys were noncommittal during the conversation with Cohen's lawyer, Stephen Ryan, the people said.
