The following is released through my attorney, Tab Turner on my behalf:
“We are not surprised by the Court’s ruling in light of the Fourth Circuit’s earlier opinion, but we are disappointed. It would have been nice if the government had told the truth before the case was decided in Virginia and the Fourth Circuit, but at least we now know that our own government was directly responsible for conducting illegal surveillance of a journalist and that Mr. Rosenstein was involved, and that Rosenstein is hiding behind alleged legal 'immunity' and legal estoppel arguments to avoid responsibility. Although as despicable as this conduct is and was, the goal was to find the truth. As everyone knows, I attempted to avoid litigation, but the government lied to me, lied to Congress, and concealed the truth of what transpired. The truth is all we as a family ever wanted. I hope and pray this never happens to another family.”
We haven't yet decided on next legal steps.
