It is considered a "central piece of information" in the Intel Committee's ongoing investigation into the FBI and related matters, according to Fox News investigative journalist Sara Carter.

"I haven't found it yet, but I've found a whole lot of other stuff that always puts DOJ and Federal Bureau of Investigation in a bad light, unfortunately", Nunes said.

Speaking with Fox News' Laura Ingraham on Tuesday, Nunes cautioned Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and FBI Director Christopher Wray that congressional investigators are "not messing around" as the men risk being held in contempt of Congress and possibly impeachment for not cooperating. In a statement on Wednesday, Nunes said he and Chairman Trey Gowdy were given access to a version of the memo that contained the information necessary to move the committee's investigation of the Department of Justice and FBI forward. It contained information that George Papadopoulos, a foreign policy advisor to the Trump campaign, told an Austrian diplomat that Russian Federation had political dirt on Hillary Clinton, according to a report from The New York Times. The official said the document was no longer redacted, except for "narrowly tailored" redactions to protect the name of a foreign country and foreign agent that, if revealed, could undermine "the trust we have with this foreign nation".

Green Bay released veteran wide receiver Jordy Nelson in March, meaning Davis (in theory) has a chance to move up the depth chart. As will most other areas of his game; Davis has only accumulated eight catches through his first two seasons.

"Although the subpoenas issued by this Committee in August 2017 remain in effect, I'd like to thank Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein for his cooperation today", the California Republican said in a statement. And if the House were to take aggressive action against Rosenstein, it could give Trump cover to fire the deputy attorney general, who is ultimately in charge of the Mueller investigation.

"I can tell you this - we are going to get the document". But Nunes said the final decision on contempt and impeachment is up to Speaker Paul D. Ryan.

Congress has the power to impeach Rosenstein and Wray for contempt, as they failed to answer the subpoena. Rosenstein, Mueller and Comey are all Republicans.
