(CNSNews.com) - Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.), the chairman of the House intelligence committee, said Republicans investigating the origins of the Trump-Russia investigation "are getting closer and closer to having the information that we need.

" Nunes said the Justice Department is now producing documents subpoenaed by Republican committee members months ago. Republicans now want President Trump to declassify some of that information so the public can see why and how the FBI launched its investigation, beginning with the FISA warrant on Trump campaign volunteer Carter Page. Nunes indicated that the focus is on Bruce Ohr, a high-ranking Justice Department official in the Obama administration whose wife Nellie worked for Fusion GPS, the firm hired by the Democrat National Committee and the Hillary Clinton campaign to produce opposition research -- the Christopher Steele dossier -- on Donald Trump.
