House panel seeks FBI, Dept of Justice documents on Comey firing

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The House Intelligence Committee on Thursday requested more documents from the Department of Justice and the FBI related to its ongoing Russia probe, including any on U.S. President Donald Trump’s dismissal last week of former FBI Director James Comey.

Republican Mike Conaway and the panel’s top Democrat, Adam Schiff, said in a statement that they were seeking the documents as part of their own ongoing probe into alleged Russian interference into the 2016 U.S. election.
