Charlie Dent: Releasing memo sets ‘dangerous precedent’

February 2, 2018 GMT

Republican Rep. Charlie Dent said the House Intelligence Committee’s release of classified information Friday puts the nation on a slippery slope going forward.

“It’s a mistake to release this memo,” said Mr. Dent of Pennsylvania. “No Members of Congress nor their staff should risk divulging sensitive sources/methods of Intelligence for partisan gain.”

“This sets a dangerous precedent that may have far reaching implications,” he said.
