CMP Statement on FBI Investigation of Planned Parenthood

Yesterday, we learned that the FBI is seeking to review thousands of pages of unredacted documents from the Senate Judiciary Committee’s investigation and criminal referrals of Planned Parenthood for the illegal sale of aborted baby body parts for profit. Two times today, Attorney General Jeff Sessions was asked about this case during his testimony before the House Judiciary Committee. Attorney General Sessions confirmed that the Senate Judiciary Committee’s findings, if verified by the Justice Department’s review, could form the basis of criminal charges against Planned Parenthood.

Planned Parenthood is responding to this news peddling a pack of lies about prior, severely limited and even compromised inquiries. The only two credible and comprehensive investigations thus far were done by the Senate Judiciary Committee and the House Select Investigative Panel, and both resulted in the criminal referrals for Planned Parenthood now being pursued by the Department of Justice.
