Press Release

WASHINGTON, DC – Congressman Tom Rooney (FL-17), a senior member of the House Intelligence Committee, released the following statement following his vote to make the Committee memorandum available to the public:

“After a thorough review of the memo to ensure it does not reveal sensitive sources and methods of the Intelligence Community, I voted tonight in support of releasing the memo to the American people,” Rooney said. “The Rules of the House lay out the process the Committee must use in order to make material like the FISA memo available to the public. Unless the president objects, I expect that this memo will be made available to the public as soon as possible after the five-day waiting period required under the House Rules.”
