Dear Chairman Jordan and Chairman Comer, 

As former national security leaders, we write this letter out of great respect and concern for the health of our Republic. We applaud your respective committees’ efforts and your shared commitment to ensuring the 118th Congress upholds its obligation to its oversight duties.  

Findings from the Durham Report highlight the politicization of investigations within the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and raise serious questions regarding the agency’s integrity involving those who engage in sensitive FBI operations.  

The Durham Report revealed FBI agents and other FBI personnel zealously initiated an investigation into former President Donald J. Trump by relying on “raw, unanalyzed, and uncorroborated intelligence” and did so in a manner that “reflected a noticeable departure from how it approached prior matters involving possible attempted foreign election interference plans aimed at the Clinton campaign.”  

It is crucial we address these serious concerns promptly and comprehensively to ensure individuals within the FBI who have demonstrated a lack of integrity in conduct related to these investigations—or others—do not maintain access to sensitive national security information. 

We urge you to hold immediate oversight hearings on the policies and criteria employed by the FBI for issuing, assessing, and revoking security clearances. Such hearings are necessary to ensure transparency, accountability, and public trust in our law enforcement agencies. Given the profound questions surrounding these actions, it is critical that your respective committees examine the FBI’s policies and practices in issuing and revoking security clearances.
