Aderholt Statement on FISA Memo Release
Washington, D.C. — Today, Congressman Robert Aderholt, released the following statement in regard to the release of the FISA memo.
“I am very pleased that the FISA memo from the House Intelligence Committee has been released to the public, as this is something I think most Americans supported. I read the memo two weeks ago, and felt the information was extremely important and should be seen by the American people.
“The public should be able to have confidence that our institutions, including the FBI, are not being politicized in favor of one candidate over another. That’s why we need transparency to show what the true facts were. This is not the way the system should work. It was interesting to see over the past several days so many of the Democrats that went out of their way to discredit this report before it was even released. I hope this information can help people understand this entire situation.”
In Washington, Congressman Aderholt serves as Chairman of the Subcommittee on Agriculture, Rural Development, Food and Drug Administration, and Related Agencies for the powerful House Appropriations Committee; he is also a member of the Committee’s Defense Subcommittee, the Committee’s Commerce, Justice, and Science Subcommittee, and the Helsinki Commission.
