Press Release

San Francisco – Speaker Nancy Pelosi issued this statement on the reports that the Trump Department of Justice investigated House Intelligence Committee Democrats:

“Recently, it has become public that the Trump Administration sought account metadata of House Intelligence Committee Members and staff and their families.

“The news about the politicization of the Trump Administration Justice Department is harrowing.  These actions appear to be yet another egregious assault on our democracy waged by the former president.

“I support Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff’s call for an investigation into this situation and other acts of the weaponization of law enforcement by the former president.  Transparency is essential.”
