Pelosi Statement on Declassification of FISA Court Orders, Related Documents

Washington, D.C. – Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi released the following statement after the Administration announced yesterday the declassification of Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act Court orders and other related documents:

“The Administration’s declassification and release of FISA Court orders and other documents related to NSA collection activities increases transparency and serves the public interest.  As the documents show, the FISA Court has engaged in meaningful oversight of collection under FISA and the NSA has taken steps to comply with the court’s orders.

“As I have said before, Congress must conduct rigorous oversight to ensure that all incidents of non-compliance are reported to the Congressional oversight committees and the FISA Court in a timely and comprehensive manner, and that appropriate steps are taken to ensure violations are not repeated.”
