Reps. Bob Goodlatte and Trey Gowdy are investigating what they see as a mishandling of the Clinton email probe.

House Republicans believe the Department of Justice is dragging its feet in turning over documents related to the FBI's handling of the Hillary Clinton email investigation, and now the head of the House Judiciary Committee is threatening to soon issue a subpoena.

Rep. Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) said the order would be issued soon because Republicans have only received a "tiny percentage" of documents that they’ve repeatedly requested, roughly 3,000 out of 1.2 million documents on a voluntary rolling basis since launching the probe in late October.

Goodlatte, who is working with House Oversight Government Reform Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.), told Fox News host Maria Bartiromo Sunday that they need the documents in order to proceed.

“We've had communications with the Department of Justice about this and they know that not just myself and Chairman Gowdy, but many other members of the House are very concerned about the slow nature of those documents being produced. And as I say, actions are going to have to take a new level here very soon,” he said.

Republicans have been keen on investigating what they see as anti-Trump bias within the FBI, and both Goodlatte and Gowdy have called for a second special counsel to investigate such matters.
