Press Release

WASHINGTON, DC – Today, Congressman Bill Foster (D-IL) issued a statement after the Department of Justice released a redacted copy of the Mueller report:

“The Mueller report outlines disturbing behavior by President Trump, including attempts to “curtail” the special counsel’s investigation. The report makes clear that the facts and legal standards preclude the special counsel from exonerating the President of obstruction of justice. Attorney General Barr has clearly decided it is more important for him to act as President Trump’s spokesperson than the highest-ranking law enforcement official of our nation, but Congress has the constitutional obligation to perform oversight of the administration and this report makes that responsibility even more imperative. It’s essential that Congress and the American people hear directly from Special Counsel Mueller so we may better understand his findings.”
