Aderholt Statement on Release of Full Mueller Report

April 18, 2019
Press Release

Washington, D.C. — Today, Congressman Robert Aderholt, released the following statement in regard to the full Mueller Report being released to the public.


“The full report from Bob Mueller’s investigation just reaffirmed the original summary report: there was no collusion between the Trump Campaign and the Russian Government.   It must be remembered, this was the sole purpose of this investigation in the first place and the conclusion of that report is clear and unequivocal.  


“Even though many of my Democrat colleagues are grasping at straws as they try to relitigate this two year, 25-million-dollar, taxpayer funded investigation, it is clear by what we have learned today, that no credible evidence for any criminal wrongdoing was found. 


“There’s an old saying that the Democrats are proving true today: ‘if you cannot argue substance, then you argue process.’  The same Democrats who claimed Russian collusion was a ‘slam dunk,’ are now arguing that they don’t like the way the report that proves them wrong is being released.


“I’m sure this full report will not end Democrat denial of the 2016 outcome.  President Trump was elected in 2016 because candidate Trump’s message resonated with the American people.  As President Trump moves forward, I hope that my colleagues on the other side of the aisle won’t continue to try to manufacture other investigations.   We have a strong economy and Congress and the President need to work together to make it even stronger.”


In Washington, Congressman Aderholt serves as Ranking Member of the Subcommittee on Commerce, Justice and Science, and Related Agencies for the powerful House Appropriations Committee; he is also a member of the Committee’s Defense Subcommittee, the Committee’s Agriculture Subcommittee, and the Helsinki Commission.
