Congressman André Carson Statement on Mueller Report Summary Letter
WASHINGTON, DC – Congressman André Carson (D-IN), a senior member of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, issued this statement following the release of Attorney General William Barr’s summary letter of the Mueller Report:
“Attorney General Barr’s summary of the Special Counsel’s report is just that—a summary. It is his assessment of the information provided, made in just two days and unchecked by any outside source. And as it stands now, this summary is far from a full exoneration of the President or his inner circle. This is why it is so critical that the full report and all underlying documentation be immediately delivered to Congress and the American people.
“The House Intelligence Committee will continue its independent investigation, now aided by the findings in this report. Congress as a whole will need to review this report and determine what steps it should take as a separate but equal branch of government. This could take time. But it is critical that we get the next steps right to ensure that we effectively protect ourselves against future meddling and hold those responsible accountable.
“As Members of both parties have said since this investigation started, this is not about partisanship or politics—it is about coming to the truth about Russian intervention in our elections.”
