WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The House Intelligence Committee on Thursday requested more documents from the Justice Department and the FBI related to its ongoing Russia investigation, including the removal of former FBI Director James Comey by US President Donald Trump last week.

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 investigation into alleged Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. elections.
