Re: DOJ Review of Intelligence Activities

Dear Chairman Nadler:

This letter responds to your request for information relating to a review currently being
conducted by the U.S. Department of Justice (Department) into certain activities involving the
campaigns in the 2016 U.S. presidential election and certain related matters (Review). The
Review is broad in scope and multifaceted, and is intended to illuminate open questions
regarding the activities of U.S. and foreign intelligence services as well as non-governmental
organizations and individuals.

It is now well established that, in 2016, the U.S. government and others undertook certain
intelligence-gathering and investigative steps directed at persons associated with the Trump
Campaign. As the Attorney General has stated publicly at congressional hearings and elsewhere,
there remain open questions relating to the origins of this counter-intelligence investigation and
the U.S. and foreign intelligence activities that took place prior to and during that investigation.
The purpose of the Review is to more fully understand the efficacy and propriety of those steps
and to answer, to the satisfaction of the Attorney General, those open questions. Among other
things, the Review will seek to determine whether the investigation complied with applicable
policies and laws. Accordingly, the Attorney General has directed that a team (Review Team)
led by John Durham, the United States Attorney for the District of Connecticut, conduct the
Review in order to better understand the activities leading up to and and relating to the counter-
intelligence investigation.
