Federal Bureau of Investigation signals criminal probe into Planned Parenthood's trafficking of aborted baby parts

The FBI has requested unredacted documents from Congress that were obtained during the 2015 hearings on Planned Parenthood's allegedly illegal trafficking of aborted baby body parts for profit, reported The Hill.

There are 2 comments on the Fox News story from 6 hrs ago, titled Planned Parenthood docs requested from Senate by Federal Bureau of Investigation, signaling possible criminal probe.

The Justice Department declined comment, saying it does not confirm nor deny whether an investigation is taking place.

The Senate probe was conducted in the wake of the Center for Medical Progress undercover video investigation that purported to show top-ranking officials discussing the sale of fetal body parts from abortions.

"Planned Parenthood and its associates are terrified of having their sordid business model exposed".

The law at issue bans anyone from profiting off the exchange of fetal tissue, but allows organizations to receive broadly defined "reasonable payments" that apparently make the ban meaningless in practice.

"These accusations are baseless, and a part of a widely discredited attempt to end access to reproductive health care at Planned Parenthood".

"Planned Parenthood strongly disagrees with the recommendations of the Senate Republican staff to refer this matter to the Justice Department, especially in light of the fact that investigations by three other Congressional committees, and investigations in 13 states including a Grand Jury in Texas, have all shown that Planned Parenthood did nothing wrong", Ms. Singiser told The Hill.

But David Daleiden, founder and project lead at the Center for Medical Progress, said that his undercover videos of Planned Parenthood show otherwise.

Planned Parenthood, which insists it never violated the law, said it provided more than 3,000 pages of documents and several witnesses to the committee. Following the revelations, Planned Parenthood announced it would no longer accept any money for the exchange of aborted baby parts.
