By Mark Hosenball WASHINGTON (Reuters) – A House of Representatives committee with broad investigative jurisdiction has turned up the heat on Target Corp, demanding that the No. 3 U.S. retailer turn over internal documents and messages describing how and when it learned of a recent massive consumer data breach. In a letter made available to Reuters, the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform requested that Target turn over all documents or communications generated between November 1 and December 13, in which Target employees or agents discuss any suspicion that a data breach had occurred. The committee set a deadline of March 1 for Target to turn over the materials. The lengthy breach of Targets computer networks over the holiday shopping period resulted in the theft of an estimated 40 million credit and debit card records and 70 million other records with customer information, such as addresses and telephone numbers.
