Statement from Congressman Dan Donovan on Release of the FISA Memo

February 2, 2018
Press Release

"This investigation has been litigated in the media for over a year with constant leaks and the presumption of guilt driven by political motivations clouding what should be an unbiased process. The American people deserve the full truth, and they have the right to evaluate information for themselves, which is in accordance with the law and why I supported releasing this document. 

“As a former prosecutor, I’m deeply concerned by the contents of this memo. Context is of course important, but the clear conflicts outlined in this document appear to violate the most basic principles of legal fairness. Whether it's the powers of the FBI, the FISA Court or our elected leaders themselves, our democracy is dependent on the trust of the American people, and getting to the truth is the only way to restore it."
