Benjamin Netanyahu, Israeli PM, to visit White House next week

Some of those from whom the committee sought documents are among the dozens indicted by special counsel Robert Mueller, who is investigating alleged Russian collusion with the Trump campaign in 2016.

Cummings claimed he has sent 12 letters to the White House on a half-dozen topics.

"The White House and the executive branch generally has been stonewalling", Judiciary Chair Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.) said Monday on MSNBC.

The White House, Cummings said, "has not turned over a single piece of paper to our committee or made a single official available for testimony during the 116th Congress".

This article has been updated to include a response from the White House.

A former Ralph Lauren fashion model and public relations professional who worked for Trump's daughter Ivanka, Hicks had no political background when she was asked in 2015 to serve as Trump's press secretary for his campaign.

We are also examining the president's "hush money" payments to silence women alleging affairs before the election, as well as the president's failure to divulge these payments on his financial disclosure forms, as required by federal law.

In doing so, Trump has pushed away the Palestinian side, who now refuse to engage in diplomacy after a string of hostile moves from the United States, including cutting back huge amounts of aid. The deadline for that request was Monday, but the White House didn't so much as bother to send a customary note outlining its reasons for refusing to comply. Jerry Nadler of NY, said he had heard from "a large number" of the those who received document requests and said the committee had received tens of thousands of pages. It's an urgent matter of national security on which the White House is completely blocking Congress. "President Trump's actions violate our Constitution's fundamental principle of checks and balances". Cummings said President George W. Bush's administration provided the oversight committee with numerous documents and witnesses during the investigations into issues including US Army soldier Pat Tillman's death and the handling of the Hurricane Katrina aftermath. This has nothing to do with presidential harassment and everything to do with unprecedented obstruction.
