Foster Statement on the Release of the Nunes Memo

Feb 2, 2018
Press Release

WASHINGTON, DC – “The release of the classified information in the Republican staff memo represents an egregious and deliberate attack on our independent law enforcement system and Robert Mueller’s investigation. The contents of the memo make it clear why the FBI expressed ‘grave concerns about material omissions of fact that fundamentally impact the memo’s accuracy.’ The system of classification and declassification of documents exists to protect our national security and keeps the public appropriately informed of the results of investigations. The President and the Republican Party have chosen to abuse this system for partisan advantage, a mistake that will set a disturbing precedent for the release of classified information in the future. The Republican Party should cease and desist from this toxic behavior and put the interests of the United States ahead of political advantage.”
