Johnson, Grassley Request Additional Declassification of FBI Director’s Briefing Notes on the Crossfire Hurricane Investigation from May 2017 that Identify Trump Critic Miles Taylor as a Possible Witness

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, sent a letter to Attorney General William Barr requesting the full declassification of briefing notes for then-Director James Comey summarizing the FBI’s investigative efforts regarding Crossfire Hurricane.  The May 1, 2017 notes identify Miles Taylor, the former Trump administration official who anonymously authored a September 2018 op-ed criticizing the president, as a possible witness in the Flynn investigation.  The chairmen enclosed the partially declassified but heavily-redacted FBI document in their request to Attorney General Barr.
