Ongoing pressure from The House Intelligence and Judiciary committees has pushed the DOJ and FBI to release new classified documents related to the origins of the FBI's Russia investigation, as well as its handling of its probe into Democrat Hillary Clinton's emails.
According to a spokeswoman for House Speaker Paul Ryan, the Justice Department has complied, at least partially, with subpoenas after lawmakers had threatened to hold officials in contempt or face possible impeachment.
The DOJ was given a deadline of Friday to turn over more than a thousand new documents. The Department has asked for more time to relaese the entire amount and they have been granted that time.
While the House Republicans look to shed more light on the Russian Probe, Democrats have repeated repeatedly accused Republicans of attempting to discredit the Department, as well as undermine the Mueller investigation. Republicans believe there was possible abuse of power by Federal agents and prosecutors concerning FISA warrents issued to monitor the Trump campaign associate Carter Page.
Republicans also request that documents relating to former British spy Christopher Steele be released as well. Christopher Steele was involved in the compilation of the dossier used against Trump to initiate the Russian Probe. Evidence has been revealed that the dossier was simply a hit piece paid for by Clinton's campaign as well as the DNC, and that this "dossier" was full of conjecture and falsehoods used to illegally obtain the warrant on Carter Page.
Chairman Devin Nunes has repeatedly called for the release of all relative documents and has said "there's going to be hell to pay" if the documents are not released by the deadline.
According to the Justice Department's acting assistant director of congressional affairs, the department has already released more than 800,000 documents for review, and the "FBI produced over 1,400 pages of responsive materials".
