MIAMI (CBSMiami/AP) – The House intelligence committee says it may opt to subpoena the Justice Department if it does not provide possible evidence that President Donald Trump was wiretapped during the election.

The committee set Monday as the deadline for getting the information, but the Justice Department says it needs more time.

The committee now says it wants the information in hand before March 20th when it holds its first public hearing on its investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.

A spokesman for committee chairman Devin Nunes of California, Jack Langer, says the committee might subpoena the information if the Justice Department fails to answer its questions.
