Congresswoman Debbie Lesko Statement on Public Release of Mueller Report
Washington, April 18, 2019
Congresswoman Debbie Lesko (AZ-08), member of the House Judiciary Committee, released the following statement today upon Attorney General Barr’s public release of the special counsel’s report.
“Once again, today’s release of the Mueller report concludes that no Americans conspired with Russia to interfere in the 2016 presidential election. Despite Democrats’ repeated attempts to claim otherwise, the report confirms there was no collusion or obstruction by President Trump or members of his campaign.
“Since the investigation concluded last month, I have called on the release of as much of the report to the public as allowed by law. I thank Attorney General Barr for releasing the report to the public today while protecting grand jury material, the privacy of individuals, and other sensitive and classified information. He has made a good faith effort to be transparent with the public.
“It is time to move on. The American people want us to focus on real issues—not partisan investigations by Democrats intended to undermine President Trump.”
