Washington, DC – Today, Representative John Curtis (R-UT) supported H. Con. Res. 24 – expressing the sense of Congress that the report of Special Counsel Mueller should be made available to the public and to Congress. He released the following statement:
“In the last two years, the federal government has spent millions of dollars on Robert Mueller’s investigation into President Trump and the 2016 election. Consistent with current law, I believe that when that report is finally complete, the American people deserve the utmost transparency about its contents, whether that information clears the President’s name or incriminates him.”
- Con. Res. 24 (Mueller Report Sense of Congress)
- This is a nonbinding resolution that simply restates current law to ensure as much transparency as the law allows.
- The special counsel regulations protect certain materials, including classified and grand jury information.
- With approximately $25 million spent on this investigation at the end of last year, tax payers should have access to the report.
