As everyone knows by now, there are multiple media reports out there that former FBI Director James Comey kept notes on a meeting with Donald Trump with Dems convinced that one line reported in this memo will lead to impeachment.
Well, Senate and House Republicans have asked the FBI to provide this memo and any other memos, recordings, etc. that might exist to the relevant committees, but there’s a catch. They’re also asking for Comey’s memos that pertain to former President Obama and the Clinton email investigation.
See the 2nd paragraph below:

@tomlobianco Chaffetz did this too. Wonder if this is how ranking Ds convinced R chairs to send the letters.

We should note that Dems have signed on to both letters signaling they don’t have any fear that Comey might embarrass his old boss.
