Langevin Statement on Mueller Testimony

Jul 24, 2019

WASHINGTON – Congressman Jim Langevin (D-RI) released the following statement regarding the testimony of former Special Counsel Robert Mueller before the House Committees on Judiciary and Intelligence:

“Director Mueller conducted a thorough, fair investigation into the Russian interference in our 2016 election, and I commend him for his service to our country. Mueller’s report and his testimony today make crystal clear that Russian interference was systematic and intended to help Donald Trump get elected. Mueller reiterated that Trump campaign personnel welcomed aid from Russia and lied about their interactions in a weak attempt to cover it up. Thirty-four people and three companies have been indicted for their involvement in election interference. The 2016 election will go down as a sad chapter in our democracy, and I will continue to fight to secure our elections from outside influence.”
