Collins statement on Mueller investigation principal conclusions – House Judiciary Committee

“For two years, Special Counsel Mueller conducted his investigation with every available Justice Department resource at his disposal, and today’s principal conclusions assure every American there was no collusion between Russia and Donald Trump or his campaign.”

WASHINGTON — Rep. Doug Collins (R-Ga.), Ranking Member of the House Judiciary Committee, issued the following statement after receiving Attorney General Barr’s principal conclusions on the special counsel’s investigation.

“For two years, Special Counsel Mueller conducted his investigation with every available Justice Department resource at his disposal, and today’s principal conclusions assure every American there was no collusion between Russia and Donald Trump or his campaign. Russia is a bad actor with dark intentions, but there is no evidence that they compromised a presidential nominee. The special counsel’s investigation was long, thorough and conclusive: There was no collusion. There is no constitutional crisis. As the report states, ‘the evidence does not establish that the President was involved in an underlying crime related to Russian election interference.’

“I have joined my colleagues across the aisle in calling for transparency here, and I welcome the openness and speed with which Attorney General Barr is sharing the special counsel’s findings with our committee and the American people.

“While we know that regulations prohibit the attorney general from revealing classified, grand jury and other sensitive information, we can take comfort that his actions are both proper and non-partisan: Democrats wrote the regulations that now govern how he handles Mr. Mueller’s report, and he appears to be complying with those regulations.

“With this in mind, Chairman Nadler has the chance to rethink his sprawling investigation, which retreads ground already covered by the special counsel and is already a matter of public record. I hope he recognizes that what may be political fodder for Democrats may not be good for our country.

“I look forward to moving ahead and working with everyone on the Judiciary Committee to do the business of the American people — fixing our broken immigration system, protecting American innovation from China’s economic espionage and investing in meaningful criminal justice reform. Today, I ask Chairman Nadler to join us in abandoning the divisiveness that Russia prizes and prioritizing the unity that has always made America stronger than our enemies.”
