Democratic ranking members of the House Oversight and Judiciary Committees wrote in a letter on Friday evening that the FBI should release more information on the emails and their investigation.

“We are writing to request that the FBI and Department of Justice issue a more complete accounting of the details behind this letter, based on information from your career investigators and prosecutors, in order to debunk these conspiracy theories and correct the public record,” the letter reads.

According to Cameron Joseph at the New York Daily News, Congressman Jason Chaffetz and the House Oversight Committee are discussing holding a pre-election hearing next Friday and bringing in Comey.
