House Intelligence Committee Passes 

WASHINGTON, D.C. – By a unanimous voice vote, the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence today reported the Intelligence Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2017 (H.R. 5077) to the full of House of Representatives.       This legislation provides the Intelligence Community authorization needed to protect and defend the United States. It supports critical national security programs such as those protecting Americans against terrorism and cyberattacks. The total funding authorized by the bill is consistent with the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2015, balancing fiscal discipline and national security.    Among other things, the legislation:            • Sustains critical capabilities to fight terrorism and counter the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction. • Shines a light on Guantanamo transfers by requiring declassification reviews of intelligence on past terrorist activities of individuals transferred out of Guantanamo Bay. • Strengthens Congressional oversight of the Privacy and Civil Liberties Oversight Board (PCLOB) by setting authorization requirements for the PCLOB and directing          PCLOB to keep Congress fully informed of its activities in a timely way.  • Caps fees for mandatory declassification reviews to match costs of similar Freedom of Information Act requests.  • Updates Intelligence Community whistleblowing procedures.  • Clarifies eligibility for death benefits for Central Intelligence Agency personnel.  • Improves Intelligence Community reporting to Congress.    “This bill will keep the Intelligence Community fully funded so it can carry out its vital work protecting Americans from a wide range of pressing foreign threats,” said Chairman Nunes. “At the same time, the bill ensures that Congress has the means to conduct vigorous oversight over the Intelligence Community’s activities. I thank our committee’s members for their bipartisan work in drafting this bill, and I look forward to its swift passage in the House of Representatives.”     Read More

Nunes Comments on Belgium Attacks

WASHINGTON, D.C. – House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes released the following statement in reaction to the attacks in Belgium:

“We stand with the people of Belgium and will support them in any way possible in the wake of these barbaric attacks. Although we don’t have all the details yet on these bombings, it’s clear that terrorists are exploiting security gaps throughout the Western world to commit mass murder. Thwarting these killers will require vigilance both by governments, which need to track and apprehend terrorists before they have a chance to strike, as well as citizens, who need to report suspicious activity to the authorities. Crucially, the Obama administration needs to adopt a broad, consistent strategy to fight ISIS, al Qaeda, and an array of other terror groups. The periodic outbreak of mass casualty terror attacks cannot be allowed to become the new normal.”

Nunes Comments on Release of Osama bin Laden Documents

WASHINGTON, D.C. – House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes released the following statement today on the release by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence of 113 new documents captured in the raid on Osama bin Laden’s Abbottabad compound:  

“Although it is gratifying to see the new release of bin Laden documents, the Obama administration still needs to produce many more. The CIA already should have provided all the bin Laden documents to the House Intelligence Committee, and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence should have already completed a classification review of all the documents to determine which can be publicly released. I look forward to receiving the remaining documents promptly.”

Nunes Comments on Obama’s Gitmo Plan

WASHINGTON, D.C. – House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes released the following statement on President Obama’s plan to close the U.S. detention facility at Guantanamo Bay:  

“President Obama's determination to move some of the world's most dangerous terrorists to U.S. soil is inexplicable and unacceptable. If the safety and security of the American people is the government's number one priority, then these prisoners must be held in Guantanamo Bay. As Obama makes attempt after misguided attempt to close Gitmo, Congress will continue to resist his ill-conceived plan to relocate these terrorists stateside.”
