Nadler, like Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, has been reticent about pushing for the president's impeachment, and told ABC such action would be "a long way down the road".
During the interview, Stephanopoulos asked Nadler if he believes Trump has obstructed justice.
Several US congressional committees are pursuing investigations focusing on Trump.
Mr Nadler isn't calling the inquiry an impeachment investigation but said House Democrats, now in the majority, are simply doing "our job to protect the rule of law" after Republicans during the first two years of Trump's term were "shielding the president from any proper accountability".
"Before you impeach somebody, you have to persuade the American public that it ought to happen", he finally said. The source said that, as part of its investigations into possible abuses of power, the committee would examine both potential promises of pardons as well as witness tampering and Trump's attacks on investigations and the press.
Weisselberg, the chief financial officer of the Trump Organization, was mentioned by former Trump attorney Michael Cohen as possibly committing a number of campaign finance crimes during his hearing last week.
Nadler also said that officials who are now serving or who have previously worked in the White House and the Department of Justice for the administration will be asked to provide information to the committee.

"It's very clear that the president obstructed justice", Nadler said., referencing the president's relentless attacks on special counsel Robert Mueller, his efforts to protect former national security advisor Michael Flynn, and his firing of former Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey. "We do not now have the evidence all sorted out and everything to do-to do an impeachment", Nadler stammered.
Despite Nadler's hesitation on impeachment, later in the show, House Minority Leader Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) charged, "I think Congressman Nadler chose to impeach the president the day the president won the election".
Nonetheless, Democrats intend to use the report released from that investigation - led by special counsel Robert Mueller - as a starting point for their own probe of the forty-fifth president. He also named the president's son, Donald Trump Jr.
Besides Comey's firing, prosecutors appear to be examining Trump's role in crafting the misleading Air Force One statement in 2017 on the now-infamous June 2016 Trump Tower meeting with Russians attended by Trump Jr.
Judiciary Committee Democrats will continue building their possible impeachment case Monday, when dozens of demands for documents will be issued to administration officials and the president's business interests.
