WASHINGTON – Republican Study Committee Chairman Mike Johnson (R-La.) released the following statement following U.S. Attorney General William Barr’s release of the Mueller report:
“Since he received the report, AG Barr has acted quickly to ensure transparency for the American people. Within just 3 days, he gave a principled summary to Congress highlighting the conclusions reached by Special Counsel Mueller. Now, the AG has combed through more than 400 pages and released the report to the public within the bounds of the law, just as he said he would. All of us in Congress are now reviewing the full report along with the rest of the nation.
“For nearly two years, this investigation has been a source of great division in our country, however, my hope is that this report will provide the clarity and peace of mind needed for Congress to move ahead and devote our time, energy and resources to solving America’s most pressing issues.”
