ALG praises decision by House Intelligence Committee to vote to #ReleasetheMemo

Jan. 29, 2018, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement praising the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence’s decision to hold a vote to release its memorandum detailing abuses of the FISA system during the Obama administration including illegal spying on the Trump campaign during the 2016 campaign:

“The decision by the House Intelligence Committee to vote to #ReleasetheMemo is a win for the Constitution and transparency and stopping future abuses of power where an administration illegally spies on the opposition party. The fact that cannot be ignored is that one of the leading members of the liberal Republican Tuesday Group, U.S. Rep. Peter King, has been at the forefront of getting the facts out to the American people. Rep. King has been one of the staunchest supporters of U.S. national security interests and his leading on this issue should tell everyone that the violations that have been uncovered pose a far greater danger to our nation than any other purported concerns to do with disclosure.”
