It is considered a "central piece of information" in the Intel Committee's ongoing investigation into the FBI and related matters, according to Fox News investigative journalist Sara Carter.

Reps. Devin Nunes and Mark Meadows both said they are prepared to impeach Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and FBI Director Chris Wray if they do not produce the document that started the investigation into President Donald Trump's potential ties with Russian Federation in the 2016 election.

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes arrives at the committe's secure offices in the basement of the U.S. Capitol House Visitors Center on February 6. Nunes appeared on FOX News on Tuesday night and said that they planned to hold FBI Director Christopher Wray and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein in contempt of Congress and impeach them. But while the Justice Department had allowed access to other documents, they had stonewalled on allowing access to the document that started the FBI's Trump-Russia investigation, even after repeated meetings, phone calls, and emails.

The ban will not affect existing licenses or onshore exploration, meaning the industry will continue unabated for years to come. Bishop Justin continued, "Today's announcement shows the government is listening".

Nunes has been trying to acquire an unredacted version of the document, the existence of which was first reported by the New York Times in December.

That report contradicted claims by several Republican lawmakers that the Federal Bureau of Investigation probe was based on a controversial opposition research dossier authored by former British intelligence agent Christopher Steele.

"We're still in a situation where it's trickle down documents". Nunes set April 11 as the deadline for the document production. "Although the subpoenas issued by this Committee in August 2017 remain in effect, I'd like to thank Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein for his cooperation today", Nunes responded.

Nunes had been threatening to hold Rosenstein and Wray in contempt - and to potentially impeach them - if the Justice Department didn't cooperate with his committee amid stepped-up congressional Republican criticism of Rosenstein as President Donald Trump considers whether to fire him.

Ingraham asked the California Republican if there was a chance that Wray and Rosenstein could face contempt charges if they refuse to comply.
