WASHINGTON, DC – House Majority Leader Steny H. Hoyer (MD) released the following statement today after Special Counsel Robert Mueller submitted a report to the Attorney General on his investigation: 

“I have been clear from the start of the Special Counsel’s investigation: Congress and the American people deserve to know what his investigation has uncovered, including information about Russia’s efforts to undermine our democracy, allegations of the President obstructing justice, and any other potential criminal conduct by government officials. Our nation is based on the rule of law and the involvement of citizens in decision-making about our future, and these require transparency in pursuit of truth and justice.  That is why I brought a resolution to the Floor last week expressing the sense of the House that the Special Counsel’s report ought to be made public to the fullest extent of the law and that every Member of Congress ought to be allowed to read it in full.  The House approved that resolution 420-0 in a powerful statement of bipartisan agreement. 
 
“I urge the Attorney General to perform his duty to country and Constitution, ensure that this report is made available to Congress and the public, and resist any attempt by the White House to interfere.  Russia and anyone involved in its efforts to undermine our elections or our democratic system of government must be held accountable and made to answer for their actions.  I thank the Special Counsel and his team for their hard work, and I expect the Attorney General to move quickly to make the report available so that the Congress can then determine the best course forward.”
