The FBI and a Congressional panel’s request not refused to turn the memos, from the pen of former Director James Comey on Thursday, give to the Committee, but, the easily.
House oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, first asked, the Comey-documents on may 16. Chaffetz to Act, said FBI Director Andrew McCabe and his Committee may issue “at any time” investigate “any” with reference to the rules of the house.

But the FBI responded on Thursday, a day after the Chaffetz 24-hour period, and said that the office is not the notes, until he consults with Robert Mueller, the special Council is now monitoring the investigation into alleged collusion between the Trump campaign, and Russia.
To take into account “In view of these developments, and other factors, we will take appropriate advice to ensure that all relevant interests are involved, by assessing your request properly,” FBI assistant director for the Office of Congressional Affairs Gregory Brower wrote to Chaffetz. “We will update this answer as soon as possible.”
But Chaffetz, who wants to resign from his seat in the house of representatives on 30 June no for an answer.
“The Committee has run its own, constitutionally-based prerogative of investigation. But the Committee wants in any way to hinder or interfere with the Special Counsel the ability to carry out its investigation,” Chaffetz wrote in a response letter to Brower. “In fact, the investigations of the Committee complement the work of the Special Counsel.”
Despite Brower’s initial decision, Chaffetz is the continuation of the push to get to help memos, notes, summaries, and records, in the investigation of the Committee. Chaffetz, the FBI announced a second deadline for compliance with the request of 8. June, 2017.
