The FBI has confirmed it is reviewing the recommendations of two congressional committees to investigate evidence of Planned Parenthood’s trade of the body parts of unborn children.
WND reported in May that leaders of several advocacy groups representing millions of Americans had written to Attorney General Jeff Sessions and then-acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe seeking an investigation, based on evidence from an independent undercover probe, into “paid fetal tissue transfers involving Planned Parenthood.”
“The facts uncovered raise a reasonable suspicion that these organizations, and/or individuals employed by them, may have engaged in a conspiracy to violate the fetal tissue law,” the letter said.
Now, the FBI’s assistant director of the Office of Congressional Affairs, Gregory Brower, has replied to the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, Sen. Chuck Grassley, informing him the FBI received the committee’s criminal referrals of Planned Parenthood and is reviewing its recommendations, according to the nonprofit legal group Liberty Counsel.
Liberty Counsel is representing one of the undercover videographers, Sandra Merritt, who captured Planned Parenthood executives talking about the trade, including one executive even who, anticipating an increase in profits, said, “I want a Lamborghini.”
