Banks Statement on Release of the FISA Memo
Washington, D.C. – Congressman Jim Banks (IN-03) today released the following statement after the Trump administration instructed the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence to declassify a committee memo with information on abuses of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act:
“I support transparency, and I am glad the American people can now read this memo. The contents of the memo are deeply troubling, and those responsible for abusing the FISA process must be held accountable. Ultimately, we must follow the truth, which is why it remains important for the Mueller investigation to continue without interruption. I also hope that the committee’s minority report will be released soon so that it too will be available to all Americans.”
The memo is available here.
