(Washington, DC) - Representative Steve Knight (R-CA) released the following statement after the White House's decision to declassify a memorandum alleging possible abuse of FISA authority within the FBI:

The information contained within the now de-classified memo released today is very concerning. As a career law enforcement officer, there is nothing I cherish more than the rule of law. Criminal and civil investigations must be conducted in the sole pursuit of justice and without political consideration. At the same time, today’s revelations do not in any way make me question the validity of Robert Mueller’s investigation or his leadership. I fully support the investigation into Russian interference in our election and will continue to do so until it is properly concluded upon discovery of the full truth. Agents of the FBI and Department of Justice are consummate professionals, and I have no doubt they will continue to serve our nation with honor and distinction.
