The Department of Justice has reached agreement with officials from the House Intelligence Committee to turn over documents relating to special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe, the panel’s chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., announced Wednesday. 

Schiff made the announcement on Twitter, where he wrote: “DOJ has accepted our offer, and will begin turning over to the Committee twelve categories of counterintelligence and foreign intelligence materials beginning this week. Our subpoena will remain in effect, and be enforced should DOJ fail to comply with the full document request.”

On Tuesday, the Justice Department had offered to give committee members access to a less-redacted version of Mueller’s report and some documents connected to the probe if Democrats dropped a threat to hold Attorney General William Barr in contempt of Congress, CBS News reported.

"The Department has repeatedly acknowledged the committee's legitimate oversight interest in these materials," Schiff  said in a statement. "I look forward to, and expect, continued compliance by the department so we can do our vital oversight work.”
