Nadler said the special counsel and prosecutors in the Southern District of NY, which are probing many of Trump's associates, were aware of the committee's investigation launch.
The Judiciary Committee on Monday sent letters to 81 people and entities - including the White House, the Justice Department, senior campaign officials, Trump Organization officials and the President's sons - marking the start of a broad investigation that will tackle questions that include possible obstruction of justice, hush-money payments to women, collusion with Russian Federation and allegations of the President abusing his office and using it for personal gain.
"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", Nadler said. But Nadler said talk of trying to remove Trump from office is premature.
"Ridiculous!" he exclaimed on Twitter.
White House press secretary Sarah Sanders called the House probe "a disgraceful and abusive investigation into exhausted, false allegations". "Their intimidation and abuse of American citizens is shameful".
The list, which asks for materials concerning possible obstruction of justice by the president, or possible conspiracy between Trump associates and Russian officials, marks the opening salvo of what some expect to be a fight between Congress and the Justice Department over Mueller's files.
They say the first step is to initiate proper investigations, which were missing in the first two years of Trump's presidency, when his fellow Republicans controlled the House of Representatives.
Various current and former Trump administration officials have been hit with document requests, including Steve Bannon, Sean Spicer, Michael Flynn, Paul Manafort, Roger Stone, Donald Trump Jr., Eric Trump and Jared Kushner, among others. That hasn't stopped Democratic leaders from drawing their own foregone conclusions and pursuing them-at great expense to taxpayers.
"The lovely thing is, no collusion". No collusion. It's all a hoax.

There's also a range of treasure to be found inside pirate ships, another new addition (which is where the cannons can be found). In Battle Royale , a volcano has appeared, as well as two new locations Lazy Lagoon and Sunny Steps.
Meanwhile, Trump spoke for over two hours at the Conservative Political Action Conference in National Harbor, Maryland, Saturday, railing against Mueller's investigation into his 2016 campaign. But the House probes go far beyond collusion.
The House Oversight and Reform Committee received testimony from Cohen last Wednesday in a high-profile hearing where the president's former lawyer accused Trump of lying to the public about his business interests in Russian Federation, his role in silencing women who alleged sexual encounters during the 2016 election and his knowledge of WikiLeaks's hacked material damaging Clinton. The Oversight and Reform Committee has launched multiple investigations into all facets of the administration.
The House Intelligence, Foreign Affairs and Government Oversight committees say they wrote to acting White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo seeking documents and interviews on Trump's communications with Putin.
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. All three have been charged in special counsel Mueller's investigation.
On Monday, Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said the letter from the House Judiciary Committee chairman has been received.
"I think Congressman Nadler chose to impeach the president the day the president won the election", McCarthy said. His name was brought up several times last week during a House committee open hearing with Cohen.
The list of document requests also includes the National Rifle Association and Trump's embattled charitable foundation, which he is shutting down after agreeing to a court-supervised process.
"This is a critical time for our nation, and we have a responsibility to investigate these matters and hold hearings for the public to have all the facts". The committee said there might be additional requests.
"Congress has a constitutional duty to conduct oversight over the Department and the White House to determine, among other things, the impact of those communications on USA foreign policy, whether federal officials, including President Trump, have acted in the national interest, and whether the applicable laws, regulations, and agency procedures. have been complied with and remain sufficient", they said in the letter.
