The Justice Department has tapped a federal prosecutor in Chicago to help speed its response to Republican demands for documents related to the FBI's handling of the Hillary Clinton email investigation.

The move, to be announced Monday, comes after President Donald Trump accused the department of "slow walking" its release of the documents and amid mounting pressure from Republicans. Trump tweeted that the department was "stalling, but for what reason?"

Attorney General Jeff Sessions and FBI Director Christopher Wray this weekend asked Chicago's U.S. attorney, John Lausch, to ensure document production is fast and redactions are necessary. He'll also be available to meet with lawmakers.

The House Judiciary Committee subpoenaed more than a million documents from the department as it examines the agency's 2016 investigation into Clinton's private email server.
