Casey Statement on Mueller Report

Casey Statement on Mueller Report

Washington, DC - U.S. Senator Bob Casey (D-PA) released a statement following the completion of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation:

"Our nation owes a debt of gratitude to Special Counsel Mueller and his team for conducting an independent investigation. I have confidence that he and the law enforcement officials who worked alongside him followed the facts wherever they led and reached conclusions based upon a thorough and fair investigative process.

"The Special Counsel's full report and the underlying documents must be made public immediately. It's a product of taxpayer dollars and the American people deserve an opportunity to read it for themselves. Additionally, seeing the full report will inform Congress as we work to protect our nation from further interference by Russia in 2020 and to conduct basic oversight and hold the Administration accountable. A four-page summary from the Attorney General is insufficient.

"I am particularly concerned that the issue of obstruction of justice remains an open question. Attorney General  Barr's letter provided his own view about obstruction, but not that of Special Counsel Mueller. This fact only reinforces why the full report must be made public."
