Well, they missed the deadline and are asking for more time.

“This afternoon, the Department of Justice placed calls to representatives of the Chairman and Ranking Member of the United States House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence to ask for additional time to review the request in compliance with the governing legal authorities and to determine what if any responsive documents may exist,” a statement from the DOJ released hours before the Monday deadline said.
House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) confirmed the request in a statement.
