House Freedom Caucus Chairman Rep. Mark Meadows took to Twitter on Saturday to attack the Justice Department for only turning over "a small percentage" of the document Congress has subpoenaed on the Russia investigation.

"New reports of DOJ/FBI compliance with document requests are NOT accurate," the North Carolina Republican tweeted. "While they have turned over additional documents, the new documents represent a small percentage of what they owe.

"The notion that DOJ/FBI have been forthcoming with Congress is false."

The Justice Department said Saturday that it had given Congress a new classified information on the Moscow probe.

But a spokeswoman for House Speaker Paul Ryan said Justice officials only partly complied with the subpoena from the House Intelligence and Judiciary committees after they turned over more than a thousand new documents this week.

House Republicans had given the Justice Department and FBI a Friday deadline for all documents, most of which are related to the origins of the agency's Russia investigation and the handling of its probe into Democrat Hillary Clinton's private email use.

Ryan's spokeswoman, AshLee Strong, said the department had asked for more time and they will get it — for now.
