HPSCI Releases Russia Report
Washington– Friday, the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HPSCI) released its Russia Investigation report to the public. The report, which has undergone the Intelligence Community’s (IC) classification review process, follows last month’s release of findings and recommendations. Congressman Mike Conaway (TX-11), who has led the probe since last April, released the following statement:
“Today, HPSCI is able to release a declassified version of our report on the Russia Investigation. With the public release of this report, the American people will have the opportunity to access the information used to draw the conclusions found in last month’sfindings and recommendations.
“However, I am extremely disappointed with the overzealous redactions made by the IC. Many of the redactions include information that is publicly available, such as witness names andinformation previously declassified.When we started this investigation, we set out to give the American people the answers to the questions they’ve been asking and we promised to be as transparent as possible in our final report. I don’t believe the information we’re releasing today meets that standard, which is why my team and I will continue to challenge the IC’s many unnecessary redactions with the hopes of releasing more of the report in the coming months.”
