Simpson Statement on Mueller Report Release

Washington, April 18, 2019

Washington, D.C. – Idaho Congressman Mike Simpson released the following statement addressing the release of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report on Russia interference with the 2016 Presidential election:

“Today's release of the Mueller report marks the final day in a process that has dominated national discourse for two years.  At last, the American people can know without a shadow of a doubt that the Trump campaign did not collude with foreign governments.  While Democrats in Congress have eagerly fanned the flames of division, it's time they accept this good news: there was no collusion and while the 2016 elections faced foreign attacks, those attacks did not change any outcomes.  I implore Democrats to put the completed investigation behind them and get down to business addressing the real challenges our country is facing.  The day Democrats and liberal media outlets decide to drop their ludicrous impeachment campaign is the day our country begins to move forward together.”
