Congressman Tim Ryan Responds to Redacted Mueller Report
Washington, DC – Congressman Tim Ryan (OH-13) released the following statement after Attorney General William Barr released the redacted Mueller report:
“Today, Attorney General William Barr demonstrated that he has decided to be the personal attorney for President Trump rather than fulfilling his role as attorney for the American people. It’s beyond unacceptable. I will continue reviewing the redacted version of the report and will pressure the Justice Department to reconsider its decision to not release the unredacted report to the American public. This report proves once again that the Russian government interfered in the 2016 election with the explicit goal of helping Donald Trump win the presidency. It is time for President Trump to stop believing Putin over our intelligence community.
“I support the House Intelligence Committee, the House Judiciary Committee, and the House Oversight Committee in continuing to investigate these matters and get to the bottom of what happened in the 2016 election and if President Trump obstructed justice. Special Counsel Robert Mueller should be called to testify before Congress. No more summaries, no more redactions – the American people deserve complete transparency. Full stop,” said Congressman Tim Ryan.
