Chaffetz and the committee's top Democrat, Rep. Elijah Cummings of Maryland, asked for the records last week, setting a May 24 deadline.
The Russian intelligence at issue purported to show that then-Attorney General Lynch had been compromised in the Clinton investigation.
Then-FBI Director James Comey knew that a critical piece of information relating to the investigation into Hillary Clinton's email was fake - created by Russian intelligence - but he feared that if it became public it would undermine the probe and the Justice Department itself, according to multiple officials with knowledge of the process.
The then-FBI director, who Trump recently fired, was reportedly anxious Russians would leak the document if he did not end the probe into the server.
"People have said he's a more transactional person", said Cooper.
According to the CNN story, Comey did not consult with Attorney General Loretta Lynch when he decided to make a public announcement that the investigation was over.
The FBI tried to verify the document, which described an email from former DNC head Debbie Wasserman Schultz to Leonard Benardo of George Soros's Open Society Foundations.
But after failing to obtain the email, the bureau didn't dig much further. The contents of the memos were described by a person who has reviewed the documents to news outlets including USA TODAY, but lawmakers are seeking the original text. The revelation caused him to see the two men's interactions in a "more menacing an upsetting light", Mr Wittes told CNN. Lynch declined to comment for this article. And why did the Federal Bureau of Investigation take it seriously?
Unless the administration seeks to claim that any existing documents can not be disclosed because they represent "privileged" communications involving the president, the committee said the "expectation is for the request to be met". But others recognized the dim outlines of a conspiracy theory that would be less surprising in Russian Federation, where Soros - the founder of the organization Benardo works for - and Clinton are both regarded as political enemies of the Kremlin.
Matt Rojansky, a Russia expert and director of the Kennan Institute at the Wilson Center, told the Post that the fact that the Russians would cook up a story linking the Clinton campaign to a conspiracy involving her email server, an Obama administration appointee, and George Soros - frequently villainized by the right as a meddlesome "globalist" - is "not surprising". "Because that is part of the Kremlin worldview".
