Oversight of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Hearing Before the Committee on the Judiciary, House of Representatives, One Hundred Thirteenth Congress, First Session, June 13, 2013   [open pdf - 2MB]

This is the June 13, 2013 "Oversight of the Federal Bureau of Investigation" hearing held before the U.S. House Committee on the Judiciary. From the opening statement of Bob Goodlatte: "Before we begin, let me take a moment to commend you [Director Meuller] for your successful tenure at the FBI [Federal Bureau of Investigation]. You took office under extremely difficult circumstances. In fact, you were confirmed 1 week before September 11, 2001, and the attacks on New York City and Washington, D.C. During your 12 years as Director, you have led the transformation of the FBI from a domestic law enforcement agency into a complex intelligence-driven national security organization whose primary missions include confronting the most significant security threats facing our Nation today. You have done the American people a great service, and for that you have my sincere gratitude. We now know that last week's unauthorized disclosure of certain NSA [National Security Agency] intelligence programs was committed by a 29-year old former defense contractor. I know there is little you will be able to say about these programs in a public hearing, but I and other Members of the Committee believe it is important for you to explain," Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Bob Goodlatte, John Conyers, Jr., Randy Forbes, and Robert S. Mueller, III.
