Welch Reaction to Special Counsel Mueller’s Statement
Rep. Peter Welch (D-Vt.) released the following statement in reaction to Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s statement earlier today. Welch is a member of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence and the House Committee on Oversight and Reform.
“Robert Mueller’s statement today underscores the urgent need for Congress to thoroughly investigate Russian interference in our elections as well as actions taken by the President and his associates to thwart the Special Counsel’s investigation. And it sheds further light on the disgraceful lengths Attorney General Barr has gone to protect the President rather than our country. In spite of the President’s determined effort to mislead the American people and stonewall Congress, we will follow the facts wherever they lead us.”
