Democrats say Mr. Whitaker contradicted himself and, at times, was evasive on a number of questions.
In the letter, Mr. Nadler said the acting attorney general gave conflicting answers on whether he ever discussed the charges brought against President Trump’s former personal attorney Michael Cohen.
When asked to confirm a CNN report that Mr. Trump lashed out at him after Cohen’s guilty plea, Mr. Whitaker said he hadn’t heard from the president on the matter.
Later, when asked if he at all discussed the Cohen case with the president, Mr. Whitaker refused to answer.
The letter did not threaten a subpoena nor request that Mr. Whitaker re-appear before lawmakers.
