Senator Cantwell reacts to Mueller appointment

U.S. Senator Maria Cantwell (D-WA) issued the following statement in response to news that former FBI Director Robert Mueller has been selected as special counsel in the investigation into Russian interference into the 2016 Election:

“I am glad someone of Robert Muller’s stature will be taking the reins of an independent investigation into Russian interference into our election.

“I still have concerns and questions about the involvement of Attorney General Sessions in the firing of FBI Director Comey,” Cantwell said.

Comey was fired last week by President Trump, but Sessions has been under the microscope since the administration noted he was involved in the recommendation to oust Comey.

Previously, Sessions announced he was stepping aside from any involvement in the investigation of Russian meddling with the 2016 Election.

In a television interview last week, Trump said Comey was fired because of the FBI’s investigation into Russia’s involvement with the election.
