The House approved a Republican-backed resolution demanding that the Justice Department turn over all remaining documents sought by congressional committees on the investigation into Russian election interference and President Donald Trump’s campaign.

The measure adopted on a party-line vote of 226-183 calls for full compliance by July 6, but it doesn’t say what would happen if Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and the department fail to meet that date. Some Republicans have talked of citing Rosenstein, who’s overseeing the continuing Russia probe, for censure or contempt of Congress or even impeaching him.
