https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/donald-trump/house-investigations-trump-his-administration-full-list-n1010131

if I have time to meander, and see what's new. While the article from NBC is old...May 22nd...the links within it are helpful to the various committee's going's on. Sometimes links leading to links kind of thing.

House investigations of Trump and his administration: The full list

At least 14 Democratic-led House committees have been investigating various aspects of President Donald Trump's businesses, campaign and his presidency since the beginning of this year, an NBC News review shows. In all, those committees have launched at least 50 probes into Trump world.


MAY 22, 201902:30
The NBC review shows the busiest committees appear to be the Judiciary and Oversight panels. Some of the inquiries might have gone dormant, and some are cross-committee ó meaning they're being investigated jointly by more than one committee ó so they are listed under those committees, but are only counted once in the NBC investigation total.

Here's a look at the probes that have been made public, organized by committee:
