WASHINGTON, D.C. - Congressman Steven Horsford (NV-04) released the following statement on Special Counsel Mueller’s remarks:

 

“Today’s statement by Special Counsel Mueller offers further confirmation of the urgent need for Congress to fulfill its oversight responsibility,” said Congressman Horsford. “I’ve read the report and it is clear that obstruction of justice occurred by this White House, and despite the DOJ’s policy preventing an indictment of a sitting president, it is now Congress’ duty to take the necessary actions because no one is above the law.”

 

“This is not about politics.  This is about the interference of a foreign actor in our national elections and the alleged obstruction of a federal investigation.  Every member of Congress must now decide how they will fulfill their sworn oath to uphold the Constitution and restore integrity to our democratic institutions.”

 

Robert Mueller was appointed Special Counsel in May 2017 to oversee the investigation of any Russian collusion during the 2017 Presidential election. Today, Mueller made his first public statement about the investigation.
