Rep. Devin Nunes said Friday that the House Intelligence Committee was "satisfied" with the information it had received from the Justice Department regarding "possible surveillance related to Donald Trump or his associates" during the presidential election.

"The committee is satisfied that the Department of Justice has fully complied with our request for information from our March 8 letter on possible surveillance related to Donald Trump or his associates," Nunes, the California Republican who chairs the committee, said in a statement.

"The committee still has not received information requested from the CIA and FBI in our March 15 letter that is necessary to determine whether information collected on U.S. persons was mishandled and leaked," the statement added.

"However, the NSA has partially met our request and has committed to fully meet our request by the end of next week," Nunes said.

The House and Senate intelligence committees had given the Justice Department until Monday regarding President Trump's claims that the Obama administration tapped his New York City telephones during the election.

FBI Director James Comey is scheduled to testify before the committee on Monday regarding all Russian-related activities during the showdown between Trump and Democrat Hillary Clinton.

Nunes' statement did not disclose the nature of the information, but CNN reported that he said that he did not believe that it would support Trump's wiretapping accusation.
