Press Release

Washington, D.C. — Today, Congresswoman Marcy Kaptur (OH-09) released the following statement after the non-classified Mueller Report was released to the public: 


“Even as Congress and the American people begin to digest the implications of the Mueller Report, I remain deeply concerned by Attorney General Barr’s handling of the Special Counsel’s investigation into Russian involvement in the 2016 election,” said Rep. Kaptur. “The Attorney General has injected himself as an unnecessary filter in this matter. His actions do not inspire confidence in his impartiality and have failed to provide closure to the American people.”


“America deserves closure. Finally, the public has access to the full report subject to what hopefully are impartial and appropriate redactions. The author of the report, Special Counsel Robert Mueller, must provide public testimony before the House and Senate without delay. The Special Counsel must also provide testimony to Congress on the full, unredacted findings of his report, in a classified setting if necessary. The American people deserve nothing less than the truth. I look forward to reviewing the over 400-page report in the coming days.”
