Crapo Statement on Full Mueller Report

Washington, D.C. – Idaho Senator Mike Crapo, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, today issued the following statement regarding the release of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s full report on the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election:  

“I have repeatedly said this investigation should come to a conclusion without interference from either side of the political aisle.  Attorney General William Barr’s four-page summary submitted last month adequately summarized the principle findings of the Mueller investigation which revealed no evidence to support allegations that President Donald Trump or the members of his campaign conspired or coordinated with the Russian government in its election interference activities.  

“Special counsel Robert Mueller’s thorough, two-year investigation included more than 500 search warrants, 2,800 subpoenas, 40 Federal Bureau of Investigation agents and 500 witnesses.  Since no credible evidence supports charges of collusion or conspiracy with the Kremlin, I am ready to move on from this drawn out attack on the President. 

“Idaho’s taxpayers sent me to Washington to enact meaningful legislation at the federal level, and my focus remains on continuing to advance commonsense reforms that advance pro-growth, pro-jobs and pro-national security policies.”
