WASHINGTON — The Justice Department has agreed to provide requested documents and witnesses related to the House Intelligence Committee’s investigation, chairman Rep. Devin Nunes said Wednessday.
“After speaking to Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein this evening, I believe the House Intelligence Committee has reached an agreement with the Department of Justice that will provide the committee with access to all the documents and witnesses we have requested,” Nunes said in an email statement. “The committee looks forward to receiving access to the documents over the coming days.”
The statement came after Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and FBI Director Christopher Wray met with House Speaker Paul Ryan to discuss the long-time document request from congressional investigators.
Neither Rosenstein nor Wray answered reporters’ questions when they exited the meeting Wednesday night.
The requested documents are related to how the agencies used information in the infamous “Trump dossier” as part of a probe between alleged connections between Trump’s campaign and the Russian government.
The dossier was researched and compiled by former British MI6 officer Christopher Steele and opposition research firm GPS Fusion.
