Welch Questions Mueller on Collusion and Russian Interference in U.S. Elections
WASHINGTON – At a Congressional hearing this afternoon, Rep. Peter Welch (D-Vt.) asked Special Counsel Robert Mueller a series of questions on collusion and Russian interference in U.S. elections. When asked by Welch if election interference with no consequences was now “the new normal,” Mueller replied, “I hope this is not the new normal, but I fear it is.”
Rep. Welch is a member of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, the House committee responsible for investigating Russian interference in the 2016 election.
