The House Judiciary Committee issued subpoenas for former FBI Director James Comey and former Attorney General Loretta Lynch to testify at hearings next month about their actions during the 2016 presidential election, according to a report on Thursday.

The Republican leader of the panel, Virginia Rep. Bob Goodlatte, signed the subpoenas on Tuesday that require Comey to appear on Dec. 3 and Lynch to be deposed the next day, Politico reported.

Comey was criticized during the election for announcing that the FBI would not recommend criminal charges against Hillary Clinton for her use of a private email server when she was secretary of state.

He then said the FBI would reopen the investigation into her emails just days before the November election.

President Trump fired Comey in May 2017.

Lynch came under fire for meeting with former President Clinton on the tarmac of an Arizona airport during the 2016 campaign while his wife was under investigation.
