Press Release

Rep. Thompson, former member of the House Select Committee on Intelligence, released the following statement on the release of the Nunes memo:

Washington, DC – “The decision by the President to release the Nunes memo is in one word: dangerous,” said Rep. Mike Thompson. “As a former member of the House Select Committee on Intelligence and someone who has read both the Republican and Democratic memos, I know that this move is a reckless political stunt.  Instead of holding this Administration and our Russian adversaries accountable, Mr. Nunes and the President are putting our Republic at risk – something that could cost lives and alliances. This is not America First and it is not an honorable thing to do. This is Nunes and the President First. It is shameful, risky, and a new low.”

Congressman Mike Thompson is proud to represent California’s 5th Congressional District, which includes all or part of Contra Costa, Lake, Napa, Solano and Sonoma Counties He is a senior member of the House Ways and Means Committee. Rep. Thompson is also a member of the fiscally conservative Blue Dog Coalition and chairs the Gun Violence Prevention Task Force as well as the bipartisan, bicameral Congressional Wine Caucus.
