Fleischmann, Blackburn Respond To Mueller's Report

Sunday, March 24, 2019

Congressman Chuck Fleischmann issued the following statement on Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report:

“Today we learned what myself, and a majority of the American people, have known all along: there was no collusion. For over two years, Democrats have perpetuated a false narrative, lied to their constituents, and left a stain on our nation’s history.

 

"The Mueller investigation was completed thoroughly and is now over. Rather than continuing their mudslinging tactics that have proven to bear no fruit, I urge my colleagues on the other side of the aisle to abandon their divisive rhetoric and get back to legislating for the good of our country.”

 

 Senator Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.) released the following statement regarding today's letter from Attorney General Bill Barr to Congress on Special Counsel Mueller's report:

 

 “After two years of thorough investigation, led by a team of 19 lawyers and 40 FBI employees, costing over $25 million in taxpayer dollars, Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s conclusions confirm that President Trump’s campaign did not collude with Russia to influence the 2016 presidential election.

 

“Attorney General Bill Barr, in a jointly reached conclusion with Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, determined the evidence from the Special Counsel report was ‘not sufficient to establish that the President committed an obstruction-of-justice offense.

 

“Attorney General Barr is to be commended for his quick release of the findings to Congress as well as his commitment to continue reviewing the matter further with Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

 

“Russia’s efforts to rig our elections and interfere with America’s democracy is a dangerous threat to our nation. I trust the Special Counsel’s findings will help us understand how we can prevent this threat moving forward.”
