FBI Statement on HPSCI Memo

The FBI takes seriously its obligations to the FISA Court and its compliance with procedures overseen by career professionals in the Department of Justice and the FBI. We are committed to working with the appropriate oversight entities to ensure the continuing integrity of the FISA process.

With regard to the House Intelligence Committee’s memorandum, the FBI was provided a limited opportunity to review this memo the day before the committee voted to release it. As expressed during our initial review, we have grave concerns about material omissions of fact that fundamentally impact the memo’s accuracy.

-- Statement issued by the FBI in response to a memo drafted by House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes, which calls into question FBI procedure with respect to a FISA warrant to surveil then-Trump campaign adviser Carter Page
