Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) and Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-MD) are investigating possible illegal coordination between the NRA and Trump campaign, after reports claimed that the NRA allegedly broke campaign finance laws by creating shell companies to give excessive funds to Trump as well as congressional Republicans.

The letter notes that the pro-gun rights group spent more than $50 million during the 2016 election cycle.

The lawmakers are demanding a whole host of records by March 6.
