She said that the FBI and the office of the Director of National Intelligence, worked together on the project, with the possible involvement of other agencies. Finally, the officials said, the declassified product would be handed over to the White house.

The officials are former FBI Director, James Comey, former FBI assistant Director Andrew McCabe, a former FBI officials Peter Strzok, former FBI lawyer, Lisa page and the ear.
