Bishop Statement on Attorney General Barr’s Summary
U.S. Attorney General William P. Barr has made public a summary of the principal conclusions reached by Special Counsel Robert Mueller following the completion of the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.
Barr made his summary known via a letter, in which it is stated that “the Special Counsel’s investigation did not find that the Trump campaign or anyone associated with it conspired or coordinated with Russia in its efforts to influence the 2016 U.S. presidential election.”
Following review of the Barr letter, Rep. Rob Bishop (UT-01) released the statement below:
“The conclusion of this investigation is welcome and encouraging and I am heartened to learn the Special Counsel has arrived at these determinations. While I am pleased with the outcome of this investigation, I am all the more pleased to be able to now put these questions behind us and get on with the important duty of working for the American people without an overshadowing political distraction. America deserves our full attention. Now, onward and upward!”
