CREW’s Melanie Sloan Offers to Testify Before House Ethics Committee on Foley Emails
Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) Executive Director Melanie Sloan yesterday wrote to the House Committee on Standards of Official Conduct, better known as the Ethics Committee, to offer to testify under oath on CREW's handling of email exchanges between former Rep. Mark Foley and a former congressional page.
CREW received the emails in July and immediately forwarded them to a special agent with the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). Various inaccurate stories have circulated regarding exactly what CREW sent the FBI and how the agency responded upon receiving the emails, including false reports that CREW gave the FBI redacted emails, that CREW refused to cooperate with the FBI, and that CREW was ABC's source for Foley's emails and instant messages.
Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) is a non-profit legal watchdog group dedicated to holding public officials accountable for their actions. For more information, please visit www.citizensforethics.org or contact David Merchant at 202.408.5565 or email@example.com
