GOP lawmakers say they’ve struck documents deal with Justice
WASHINGTON (AP) — Two House Republican committee chairmen say the Justice Department has agreed to provide them with documents on the Hillary Clinton investigation that they’ve been requesting for months.
The deal was struck after leaders of the Judiciary and Oversight committees met this month with the U.S. attorney, John Lausch, who has been selected to respond to Republican demands for documents.
The committees have been investigating the FBI’s handling of the Clinton email investigation, which ended in 2016 without criminal charges.
The Judiciary Committee, led by Rep. Bob Goodlatte of Virginia, issued a subpoena to the Justice Department last month for records of the investigation.
Goodlatte and the chairman of the Oversight and Government Reform Committee, Rep. Trey Gowdy, met with Lausch two weeks ago about the documents.
