Rep. Phillips Statement on Release of the Mueller Report
Washington, DC, April 18, 2019
Today, Rep. Dean Phillips (MN-03) issued the following statement on the release of the Mueller Report:
“As the Mueller Report confirms, Russia interfered with our 2016 election ‘in a sweeping and systemic fashion.’ The President must acknowledge this truth and work with Congress to ensure such meddling never happens again.
I am also troubled by the pattern of lies, deceit, and efforts to undermine the investigation exposed by the report. We should demand and expect a higher standard of behavior and ethics from our elected officials, particularly the President of The United States.
Congress must be presented the unredacted report, and hear testimony directly from Special Counsel Mueller. Only then can we in Congress fulfill our constitutional duty to provide oversight and ensure accountability.”
