Alaska Congressman Don Young released the following statement after reading the classified memo prepared by the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence.

“As Dean of the House, I’ve served in this body for 45 years with 9 different Presidents and after reading the memo – I’m extremely concerned," said Congressman Young. "The findings in this memo are deeply troubling and I’m requesting a vote to release this information to the American public. I believe this information must be made public for the good of the nation. It is imperative that they know the truth and the sooner this is released, the better.”

On Thursday, January 18, 2018 the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence voted to release the classified memo to Members of Congress. No vote has been scheduled to make the information from the memo available to the public.
