Video+Statement: Cornyn – As Much of Mueller Report Should be Public as Possible

WASHINGTON – On Monday, U.S. Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) discussed the conclusion of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation and urged Attorney General William Barr to release as much of the findings to the public as possible under the law.

Excerpts of Sen. Cornyn’s floor remarks are below, and video can be found above.

“Any attempts by a foreign government to interfere with our democratic processes, successful or unsuccessful, must not be taken lightly. Though the Special Counsel’s investigation was very targeted and specific, members of the Senate Intelligence Committee on which I serve continue our work to more closely examine the matter”

“After reviewing the Special Counsel’s findings, the attorney general concluded that the Trump campaign did not coordinate with the Russian government in their efforts to influence the election. Based on the reaction since General Barr’s release of his letter, it’s clear that the partisans who will never be satisfied with any results of an investigation will not be appeased by this report from the Special Counsel.”

“I agree with those on both sides of the aisle as well as the president who want the Mueller report to be released publicly. As much of the report as can be released consistent with existing law should be made public so that the American people can read it for themselves.”

Senator John Cornyn, a Republican from Texas, is a member of the Senate Finance, Intelligence, and Judiciary Committees.
