DOJ Fails To Turn Over All Requested Documents By House Committees

GOP committee leaders say the DOJ has once again failed to meet their request for documents.
The Department of Justice provided some documents ahead of Friday’s deadline, but failed to fully meet the demands of lawmakers.
The document production comes in response to a subpoena issued by House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte and House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes.
They’re seeking records related to the Russia probe, FISA applications and the FBI’s handling of the Clinton email investigation.
During Tuesday’s Horowitz hearing, Democrats claimed the document requests were being used as a pre-text to fire Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.
Committee leaders met with speaker Paul Ryan and Oversight and Governmental Reform Chairman Trey Gowdy Friday to discuss the next steps.
It remains unclear if House Republicans will hold Rosenstein in contempt of Congress.
