For Immediate Release House Intelligence Minority Memo Must be Secured & Released - Americans Deserve the Truth

Statement of Common Cause President Karen Hobert Flynn

Posted on February 9, 2018

The American people must have the truth about the Russia-Trump investigation. The DOJ must work with Intelligence Committee staff of both parties to make any legitimate redactions to the minority memo as soon as possible and then release it. Americans deserve the truth, not a cover-up.

The Intelligence Committee’s unanimous vote in support of releasing the memo makes it clear that there are many facts that have not been shared with the public. The public needs them, and we need them now. Instead of strengthening our country, President Trump’s term has been defined by the erosion of trust in our most valued civic institutions.

The minority memo must be released, otherwise Americans will know that the President is protecting himself and obstructing the House Intelligence committee investigation.

Common Cause is a nonpartisan grassroots organization dedicated to upholding the core values of American democracy. We work to create open, honest, and accountable government that serves the public interest; promote equal rights, opportunity, and representation for all; and empower all people to make their voices heard in the political process.
