- Expect a decision in June
- Ex-Sen. Bob Graham was briefed on progress
Graham, the co-chairman of the 2002 congressional inquiry that has led the push to have the documents released to the public, was given an update on the review process in an hour-long meeting with Director of National Intelligence James Clapper on Tuesday evening.
"(Clapper) is just about finished in his review and will be handing it off to an inter-agency group," Graham said. That group includes intelligence, law enforcement and defense agencies.
President Barack Obama is expected to make a decision on whether to release the documents in June, a schedule that Graham believes is still on track.
"It appears as if the schedule that the President had set back in April is still holding. There will be a decision sometime in June," Graham said. "I hope as early in the month as possible."
