WASHINGTON, DC – House Democratic Whip Steny H. Hoyer (MD) released the following statement after President Trump blocked the release of the House Intelligence Committee Democrats' memo:

“It is deeply disturbing that President Trump has blocked the release of the memo written by House Intelligence Committee Democrats, which clarifies the FBI's pursuit of a FISA warrant connected with the Russia investigation. This action raises serious questions about what the President is trying to hide. After the President’s release of a one-sided, misleading memo written by Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee, it is only appropriate that Americans see all the facts. Instead, the President is blocking its release, denying the public the transparency it deserves as this investigation moves forward.”
