DeLauro Statement on Release of Redacted Mueller Report
WASHINGTON, DC — Congresswoman Rosa DeLauro (CT-03) today released the following statement after the Department of Justice submitted a redacted version of Special Counsel Mueller’s report to Congress.
“After an extensive investigation, the Special Counsel found widespread interference from the Russian government in our 2016 Presidential election, which merits strong and swift Congressional action to protect our nation’s elections in the future. Moreover, despite Attorney General Barr’s political spin, the Mueller report details multiple instances in which President Trump attempted to obstruct justice and end the Special Counsel’s investigation. To quote Mueller and his team from Volume II of the report, ‘if we had confidence after a thorough investigation of the facts that the President clearly did not commit obstruction of justice, we would so state.’ As such, Congress and the American people deserve to see the full report and all of its underlying evidence, as well as hear directly from Special Counsel Robert Mueller on his team’s findings.”
