(Breitbart) The FBI has indicated it may be responding to criminal referrals of Planned Parenthood by the Senate Judiciary Committee by requesting from the committee the unredacted documents from abortion providers.
According to the Hill, the request from the FBI was made recently.
The Justice Department typically does not confirm or deny an investigation, but sources for the Hill state Senate Judiciary Committee chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA) is working to comply with the FBI’s request for documents.
Breitbart News reported at the end of September the FBI’s assistant director of the Office of Congressional Affairs had sent a letter to Grassley, informing him the agency was in receipt of the Senate Judiciary Committee’s criminal referrals of Planned Parenthood and its partners in the fetal tissue procurement industry.
“We can confirm the Criminal Investigative Division (CID) of FBI Headquarters received your referrals and sent them to the relevant FBI field offices for review and whatever action is deemed appropriate,” the FBI’s Gregory Brower wrote to Grassley in June.
In his correspondence, Brower apologized to Grassley “for the delay in responding to your inquiry” and indicated receipt of the chairman’s letter, dated April 24, to both former FBI Director James Comey and Attorney General Jeff Sessions “concerning criminal referrals you made on December 13, 2016, to the FBI and Department of Justice.”…
