Deutch Statement on Robert Mueller Delivering Report to AG Barr
Following reports that special counsel Robert Mueller delivered his report to U.S. Attorney General Bill Barr, Congressman Ted Deutch (FL-22), a senior member on the House Judiciary Committee, issued this statement:
"Special counsel Mueller and his team have worked tirelessly to investigate how Russia interfered in our 2016 presidential election, and I applaud his team for their hard work to expose the truth and hold people accountable.
"Make no mistake, this is only the first step. The Attorney General should make the report public and let the American people learn the facts Mueller uncovered. The American public deserves to know the truth, and only full transparency and accountability will ensure that the President is not above the law.
"Our mission to get to the truth is not over. Congress must take appropriate measures to make this report and underlying facts public. Congress has the constitutional responsibility to ensure the rule of law is respected by the President and his Administration. Democrats on the Judiciary Committee will continue to investigate any attempts to interfere in the special counsel’s investigation, to obstruct justice to protect themselves or others, or in any way to violate the rule of law."
