Harris Statement on Release of Nunes Memo

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Kamala D. Harris, a member of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence and the Senate Judiciary Committee, released the following statement today on the release of the Nunes memo:

“This is not about transparency. This is an effort to weaponize classified information for political gain and expediency. In doing so, this White House is continuing its attacks on the American intelligence community.

“The men and women of the intelligence and law enforcement communities are charged with the heavy responsibility of employing sources and methods to gather and protect our nation’s intelligence. This threatens their ability to do that critical work.

“I will continue to support these brave men and women and demand law enforcement – including the Special Counsel – be given independence to do their job and find the truth, free of political interference.”
