Washington, DC – Today, Representative John Curtis (R-UT) released the following statement regarding the report of Special Counsel Mueller:

“I look forward to reading the complete report as soon as it is available. I remain consistent in my opinion that the American people should have that same opportunity as soon as possible so that we can put this period of doubt and division behind us and begin to restore faith in our institutions.

I want to thank Special Counsel Robert Mueller and his team for their service and their fastidious execution of their duties.”

Background

Based upon the principal findings from the Special Counsel, “[T]he investigation did not establish that members of the Trump Campaign conspired or coordinated with the Russian government in its election interference activities.”

The Attorney General determined that evidence from the investigation was “not sufficient to establish that the President committed an obstruction-of-justice offense.” He further wrote to Congress that “while this report does not conclude that the President committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him.”

Over 674 days, Special Counsel Mueller’s office issues more than 2,800 subpoenas, executed nearly 500 search warrants, obtained more than 230 orders for communication records, and interviewed approximately 500 witnesses.
