Graham Statement on FISA Court’s Condemnation of Page FISA Warrant Application Process

WASHINGTON – Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) today made this statement.

“Very pleased to see the FISA court condemn the FISA warrant application and process against Carter Page. As Inspector General Horowitz’s report describes in great detail, the FISA process falsified evidence and withheld exculpatory evidence to obtain a warrant against Mr. Page on numerous occasions.

“As chairman of the Judiciary Committee, I’ll be working with my Republican and Democratic colleagues to reform FISA in a fashion to better protect civil liberties while maintaining our ability to monitor foreign surveillance directed against our economic and national security interests. FISA reform will be a top priority for the Judiciary Committee in 2020.”
