Statement from Eric Ferrero, Vice President for Communication at Planned Parenthood Federation of America:

"Based on what we know now, it’s highly unlikely that this is full, unedited source footage. For months, David Daleiden has claimed that unedited video was posted publicly, when in fact every video he has posted has been heavily and deceptively edited. Last month, we sent leaders of this committee a memo from a leading expert who analyzed video for the FBI for several years, which explained that anything short of full source footage is useless.

“In the past, David Daleiden has said thathe has multiple terabytes of video footage, and today it was announced that Congress has received 800 gigabytes of data. Where’s the rest?

“David Daleiden and his group of extreme anti-abortion activists have lied, created false identities, created a fake company, and probably broke multiple laws to perpetrate a fraudulent smear campaign. This man has lied for months about every aspect of these issues.

“This is a fraud, intended to deceive the public in order to advance an extreme political agenda to ban safe and legal abortion in this country. The political agenda behind these false and baseless attacks has become completely clear, and it’s an agenda that the public rejects.”
