Wednesday afternoon, Special Council Robert Mueller made his first public statement since the release of his 448 page report detailing the extent of Russia’s interference with the 2016 Presidential Elections. In his address, Mueller set the record straight and reiterated the contents of his findings: Russia meddled in our elections, the President’s team welcomed Russian interference and the President tried to obstruct the investigation in eleven different instances.
Special Counsel Mueller made clear that he did not exonerate the President when he stated, ‘If we had confidence that the President clearly did not commit a crime, we would have said so.’ He stated that the decision not to indict stemmed directly from the Department of Justice’s policy that a sitting President cannot be indicted. Despite Department of Justice policy to the contrary, no one is above the law – not even the President.
The Congress holds sacred its constitutional responsibility to investigate and hold the President accountable for his abuse of power. We will continue to investigate and legislate to protect our elections and secure our democracy. The American people must have the truth. We call upon the Senate to pass H.R. 1, the For The People Act, to protect our election systems. Read More
