April 27, 2016

US lawmakers are scheduled to meet next month with Director of National Intelligence (DNI) James Clapper to discuss the declassification of 28 pages of the joint congressional report on the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, Congressman Walter Jones told Sputnik on Wednesday.

WASHINGTON (Sputnik) Besides Jones the meeting with Clapper will attend former US Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Bob Graham and possibly Congressman Stephen Lynch.

"On the 17th of May, we will be meeting with DNI Clapper to have a discussion with the hopes that he will agree to encourage the President [to declassify the 28 pages]," Jones said.


Jones is the lead sponsor of legislation calling on President Barack Obama to declassify the report on the 2001 terrorist attacks that killed nearly 3,000 Americans. The legislation was also picked up by the Senate and is supported by Senator and former Republican presidential Candidate Rand Paul.
