Chaffetz Statement on Planned Parenthood Video Footage

Published: Oct 14, 2015

WASHINGTON—Today, House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) issued the following statement regarding the Committee’s ongoing investigation into Planned Parenthood:

“The Committee has received all unedited video footage from the Center for Medical Progress (CMP) as required by our subpoena. A viewing room is set up in the Committee office where all Committee members and staff—majority and minority—have equal access to view the footage. With nearly 800GB of data to review, it will take significant time to evaluate all of the footage. Out of an abundance of caution to ensure the safety and security of all individuals recorded, the footage will not be released to the public at this time.”

Background:
On September 15, 2015, the Committee issued a subpoena to CMP for all unedited video footage in their possession related to the acquisition, preparation, and sale of fetal tissue. Further information regarding the Committee’s investigation can be found here.
