 “the American people should have access to the report.– Katko

Washington, D.C. — U.S. Rep. John Katko (NY-24) today released the following statement:

“From the start, I have supported the investigation of Special Counsel Robert Mueller, and have consistently stated that I would respect his final report.  As a former federal prosecutor, I know the tremendous amount of effort this report required by Mr. Mueller and his team.  I appreciate their diligent work.

“The Justice Department has made clear there was no collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.  I’m glad that this report clears the air on this issue, and I hope that it will allow us to move past the distraction caused by accusations of collusion.  I believe the report should be released as completely as possible so we can put these issues to rest.  I recently voted for a resolution before the House supporting the public release of Mueller’s final report.  I look forward to reviewing it in full, and believe the American people should have access to the report.
