TURNER on Schiff Memo

February 23, 2018

Congressman Mike Turner (OH-10), member of the House Intelligence Committee, released the following statement after Ranking Member Adam Schiff (CA-28)’s memo was released:

“As I stated multiple times in the business meeting to release this memo, and as  House Intel Democrats acknowledged and agreed five times in that meeting, Mr. Schiff’s memo does not disprove that politically funded documents were used as evidence in court. In this case, the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton’s campaign paid for dirt on its opponent, which was then used in a court as evidence to surveil a citizen of the United States. This was an abuse of FISA. Politically funded documents from either side should not be used as evidence in Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Courts.”
