House oversight committee Chairman Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) threatened on Sunday to hold top FBI and Justice Department officials in contempt of Congress if they fail to comply with lawmakers’ subpoenas for sensitive documents.

Earlier this year, lawmakers subpoenaed troves of documents from the two agencies related to the FBI’s investigation into Hillary Clinton’s email server, the firing of former FBI official Andrew McCabe, and alleged surveillance of the Trump campaign during the 2016 election.

Republicans have accused the DOJ and FBI of intentionally blocking their investigation. The agencies claim that the requested documents require time-intensive review before they can be released.
