Johnson, Grassley release FBI, DOJ, State Department records related to the FBI’s Crossfire Hurricane Investigation

WASHINGTON — U.S. Senators Ron Johnson (R-Wis.), chairman of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, and Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), chairman of the Senate Finance Committee, today released over 400 pages of documents from the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), Department of Justice (DOJ), and the Department of State regarding the FBI’s Crossfire Hurricane investigation of the Trump campaign and administration. The Committees obtained these records through joint requests, as well as Chairman Johnson’s August 6, 2020, subpoena to the FBI. The Chairmen also released a comprehensive timeline of key events related to the Crossfire Hurricane investigation.

The Chairmen made the following statement:

“For years, the American people have demanded answers to questions regarding the FBI’s Crossfire Hurricane investigation and its targeting of the Trump campaign, the presidential transition, and the Trump administration. Our committees have sought to uncover and expose misconduct by calling on agencies to declassify and produce text messages, internal emails, and other investigative material, which in turn we have made public. Although agency bureaucrats have fought tooth and nail to keep records hidden, our commitment to transparency has never wavered. The documents we are releasing today are the product of our continued fight for transparency. These documents are far less than what we have requested, but we are making them public so the American people can decide for themselves what wrongdoing did and did not occur.”
