The outlet reported that the Senate passed a resolution Wednesday authorizing the committee to share documents with the DOJ regarding alleged unauthorized disclosures by a “former employee of the Committee.”

“I think the United States Senate responds to requests from the Department of Justice when they’re made — they’re not frequently made,” committee Chairman Richard Burr (R-NC) told CNN.
