Sen. Chuck Grassley isn't thrilled with the cold shoulder James Comey is showing the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, and he wants answers about the FBI director's "material inconsistencies" regarding the agency's ties to a British spy.

Grassley sent Comey another letter Friday, citing the FBI's "startling lack of responsiveness" regarding information Grassley sought from two previous letters, wanting to know the relationship between the FBI and Christopher Steele, the purported author of the controversial dossier published on the internet in February.

"There appear to be material inconsistencies between the description of the FBI's relationship with Mr. Steele that you did provide in your briefing and information contained in Justice Department documents made available to the Committee only after the briefing," Grassley wrote.

"Whether those inconsistencies were honest mistakes or an attempt to downplay the actual extent of the FBI's relationship with Mr. Steele, it is essential that the FBI fully answer all of the questions from the March 6 letter and provide all the requested documents in order to resolve these and related issues."

Grassley said he wants answers to these "important issues that require public transparency" by May 12 to avoid "additional holds on nominees" for the Justice Department.
