Jerry Nadler has been a thorn in the side of President Trump since Trump was calling him fat Jerry when Nadler tried to block a Trump development in New York City.
So this animus has been a long-time thing, that said, conflicts arise and one must follow proper procedures and Nadler is not. From Big League Politics:
Democrat congressman Jerry Nadler, leading the investigative charge against President Donald Trump, has a son whose firm is trying to get access to Trump documents for their clients in numerous lawsuits against President Trump.
“Congressman Jerry Nadler has a big conflict,” our source tells Big League Politics in Washington, D.C.
“His son (Michael Nadler) got a job with Gibson Dunn & Crutcher LLP in 2018. That’s convenient because Jerry Nadler and the Democrats just won control of the House in 2018. Gibson Dunn & Crutcher hire Jerry’s son and Gibson Dunn & Crutcher are the main Nemesis against Trump and the Trump Administration on numerous lawsuits.
Now the Nadler family will gain access to thousands of Trump documents via Jerry’s subpoenas!,” our insider stated.
Gibson Dunn represented CNN’s Jim Acosta in his lawsuit against the Trump White House after President Trump revoked Jim Acosta’s press credentials for creating a disturbance in a press briefing and making physical contact with a female White House intern.
In December Gibson Dunn announced that it was representing the Center for Reproductive Rights in its lawsuit against the Trump State Department concerning abortion language in Trump administration human rights reports. Gibson Dunn’s global co-chairman Ted Boutros sued President Trump in a bid to protect the DACA Dreamer program.
