GOP House Oversight and Judiciary chairmen will get Justice Department documents on ‘key decisions' in 2016
Trey Gowdy appears on CNN (screen grab)

House Oversight Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy (R-SC) and House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-VA) have struck a deal with the Justice Department for documents on "key" DOJ decisions from 2016 and 2017, CNN's Manu Raju reported.


The Republican chairman duo have for months lobbied the DOJ for information on a range of supposed abuses that took place within the department, including a GOP-led call for more information on the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act warrant to spy on former Trump campaign aide Carter Page. Page's surveillance was the subject of a much-hyped House Intelligence Committee memo earlier this year that omitted evidence suggesting the former Trump campaign advisor has been suspected of acting as a Russian foreign agent since at least 2014.
