Senator Murray reacts to appointment of special prosecutor in Russia investigation

U.S. Senator Patty Murray said the appointment of former FBI Director Robert Mueller to serve as a special prosecutor to oversee the FBI’s investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 Election — including potential ties to the Trump campaign — was “a positive step.”

Murray (D-WA) released the following statement after the appointment was announced Wednesday:

“The appointment of Robert Mueller to serve as special counsel is a positive step toward holding President Trump accountable and making sure the American people are getting the answers and information they deserve.

“Mr. Mueller is a dedicated public servant who should be given the resources he needs to lead a thorough, independent examination of President Trump and his Administration’s many concerning ties to Russia and any actions that may have been taken to cover them up,” Murray said.
