The Republican-led House Judiciary Committee has subpoenaed the Department of Justice for memos written by former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe.

Thursday's subpoena also covers documents related to the FBI's application and renewal of a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act warrant for former Trump campaign foreign policy adviser Carter Page – and all documentation shared with a group of bipartisan Senators on Russian meddling in the 2016 election, the The Washington Times reported.

"[W]e have requested additional documents (listed in the document schedule for the attached subpoena) that the Department has either refused to produce or has continually delayed producing," House Judiciary Chairman Rep. Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., wrote in a letter to Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who recused himself from the Russia probe last year, The Hill reported.

"Review of these documents is essential to our investigation."

"Accordingly, given the Department's ongoing delays and/or refusal to produce these documents, I am left with no choice but to issue the enclosed subpoena to compel their production," Goodlatte added.

Conservative lawmakers have demanded McCabe's memos become public since The New York Times reported last week he attended a meeting where Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein discussed secretly recording President Donald Trump and suggested removing the president from office through the 25th Amendment.

Rosenstein has denied the report.
