The Department of Justice will provide the House Intelligence Committee with documents and witnesses related to the Fusion GPS dossier on President Donald Trump.

"After speaking to Deputy Attorney General [Rod] Rosenstein this evening, I believe the House Intelligence Committee has reached an agreement with the Department of Justice that will provide the committee with access to all the documents and witnesses we have requested," the committee's chairman, Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., said in a statement Wednesday night.

"The committee looks forward to receiving access to the documents over the coming days."

The dossier, which was compiled by a former British intelligence agent and opposition research firm Fusion GPS, reveals the details with Trump's alleged connections to Russia.

Nunes made his statement shortly after House Speaker Paul Ryan met with Rosenstein and FBI Director Christopher Wray to discuss the request, although neither official took questions from reporters after leaving the meeting.

Prior to the agreement, Nunes wrote to Rosenstein to say that the "intransigence" by the Justice Department and the FBI in ignoring the committee's request "can no longer be tolerated," after earlier threatening to issue contempt citations against Rosenstein and Wray.
