Washington, D.C. – U.S. Rep. Lloyd Smucker (PA-16) is urging the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence to immediately release a classified document to the public that “contains revelations about U.S. government surveillance abuses.”

In a letter to Chairman Nunes, Rep. Smucker and a number of his colleagues said:

“After reading the document, we were shocked and frustrated, but it has deepened our belief in the vital importance of transparency. This important memo will be of interest to anyone who cares about America and our democratic system of government.”

Washington, D.C. 20515

 

Dear Chairman Nunes:

Thank you for your hard work as Chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HPSCI), and for making the recent four-page memo from HPSCI available to Members of Congress. After reading the document, we were shocked and frustrated, but it has deepened our belief in the vital importance of transparency.

This important memo will be of interest to anyone who cares about America and our democratic system of government. We are writing to request the immediate release of this document to the public, as well as any relevant ancillary information. The audience of this document should not be limited to Members of Congress — the American people deserve to know the information it contains.

Thank you for your service and for your prompt attention to this request.
