January 18, 2018 Press Release
After reading the classified document released to Members today by the House Intel Committee regarding FISA abuse, I’m calling for its immediate public release with all relevant source material. In the interest of transparency, the American people must have access to this information immediately. Releasing this classified information will not compromise good sources and methods.
