The chairman of the House committee that would lead any proceedings aimed at President Donald Trump’s impeachment said on Sunday that he believes the president has obstructed justice and will be issuing document requests to more that 60 people across the administration.

Rep. Jerry Nadler, a New York Democrat who helms the powerful House Judiciary Committee, told George Stephanopoulos on ABC News’ “This Week” that “it’s very clear that the president obstructed justice” when he fired former FBI Director James Comey to squelch the investigation into his campaign’s ties to the Kremlin.

“He tried to protect [Michael] Flynn from being investigated by the FBI. He fired [James] Comey in order to stop ‘the Russian thing,’ as he told NBC News… he’s intimidated witnesses, in public.” Nadler said the committee will be issuing document requests Monday to people from the “White House to the Department of Justice, Donald Trump, Jr., Allen Weisselberg, to begin the investigations to present the case to the American people about obstruction of justice, corruption and abuse of power.”
