House Republicans moved toward a vote this week on a measure pressing Justice Department officials to provide more documents on investigations during the 2016 presidential election, or risk contempt of Congress or impeachment.

Republican leaders gave their blessing to an effort to advance the resolution, and the Rules Committee scheduled a meeting on the resolution on Wednesday. The goal is to hold a floor vote on Thursday, one of the co-sponsors, GOP Representative Jim Jordan of Ohio, said in an interview Tuesday night.
