Attorney General Jeff Sessions said Friday he would make sure the Justice Department deals with the issues raised in the House Intelligence Committee memo about the abuse of surveillance authorities.

"Congress has made inquiries concerning an issue of great importance for the country and concerns have been raised about the Department’s performance," he said after its release. "I have great confidence in the men and women of this Department. But no Department is perfect."

"Accordingly, I will forward to appropriate DOJ components all information I receive from Congress regarding this," he said. "I am determined that we will fully and fairly ascertain the truth."

"We work for the American people and are accountable to them and those they have elected," Sessions added. "We will meet that responsibility."

The memo released by House Republicans said the Justice Department didn't tell the FISA court that its justification to surveil a former Trump staffer was based on an analysis generated by Democrats.
