WASHINGTON – U.S. Sens. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) and Chris Coons (D-Del.), members of the Senate Judiciary Committee, today released the following joint statement in response to reports that President Trump will allow the release of a memo written by House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (R-Cal.) based on classified material shared with certain members of Congress on a restricted basis:

“President Trump should heed the warnings of the Justice Department and FBI, and reverse his reported decision to defy longstanding policies regarding the disclosure of classified information. The president’s apparent willingness to release this memo risks undermining U.S. intelligence-gathering efforts, politicizing Congress’ oversight role, and eroding confidence in our institutions of government.”
