WASHINGTON (AP) — Three House Republican committee chairmen want the Justice Department to provide them with copies of memos written by former FBI Director James Comey about his conversations with President Donald Trump.
House Judiciary Committee Chairman Robert Goodlatte, House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy and House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes asked that unredacted copies of the memos be made available by Monday.
The request came in a letter to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein on Friday.
The three chairmen wrote that there is "no legal basis for withholding these materials from Congress."
House Republicans have repeatedly threatened to hold Justice Department officials in contempt as they have sought more than a million pages in documents related to Democrat Hillary Clinton and the beginning of the department's Russia investigation.
