White House on FISA Memo Release: Raises ‘Serious Concerns’ About FBI, DOJ Integrity


The White House has made an announcement addressing the massive intrigue over President Trump‘s decision to release the House Intelligence Committee’s GOP memo on alleged FBI investigative malpractice.

In the statement, Sarah Huckabee Sanders expresses “serious concerns” about what the memo says about how the Justice Department and FBI acquire FISA warrants. The Press Secretary says Trump gives thanks to the intelligence and law enforcement communities, and he is “especially grateful” to the “rank and file” members in both arenas who labor to protect American citizens and their constitutional rights.

“Minority members of the Committee have reportedly drafted a separate memorandum. The Administration stands ready to work with Congress to accommodate oversight requests consistent with applicable standards.”
