Leahy Rejects White House Deal

LEAHY WRITTEN STATEMENT:

“I was glad to meet Mr. Fielding and I welcome the fact that these issues have his full attention.

“I don’t accept his offer. It is not constructive and it is not helpful to be telling the Senate how to do our investigation, or to prejudge its outcome.

“Testimony should be on the record, and under oath. That’s the formula for true accountability.

“I hope the President will agree to be forthcoming.

“The straighter the path to the truth, the sooner we will finally know the facts.”
