The FBI updated House Republicans on Friday night about the records that have been provided so far in response to subpoenas on issues related to the Clinton email investigation, FISA orders on Trump campaign associates, and the Russia investigation, CNN reports.

The details: The FBI says it has "substantially complied" with two requests, but CNN reports that "several issues remain outstanding." One of those is a request from the House Intelligence Committee related to the Clinton Foundation, which the FBI says it needs to "further engage with the Committee to better understand."

  • House Speaker Paul Ryan's spokesperson AshLee Strong told CNN: ""Our efforts have resulted in the committees finally getting access to information that was sought months ago, but some important requests remain to be completed. Additional time has been requested for the outstanding items, and based on our understanding of the process we believe that request is reasonable."

Go deeper: This matter has consumed the committees for months and garnered the ire of President Trump.
