Ranking Member Jim Jordan’s Statement on the Mueller Report

Published: Apr 18, 2019

WASHINGTON, DC – Today, Congressman Jim Jordan (R-OH), Ranking Member of the House Committee on Oversight and Reform, released the following statement on the Mueller report:

“Democrat Members of Congress should take a deep breath and read the Special Counsel’s report before jumping to conclusions. The Attorney General already confirmed what we long suspected. No collusion. No obstruction. It would be a miscarriage of justice to use cherry-picked bits of information from the report to sow further divisiveness and spread conspiracies that serve only to undermine our democratic institutions.

One thing, however, is clear with the release of the report today: this sad chapter of American history is behind us. It is time to turn back to the people’s work of improving the efficiency, economy, and effectiveness of how their tax dollars are spent.

Despite the Special Counsel’s findings, it seems nothing will stop Democrats in Congress from trying to get the President at all costs. We just learned this week that they have Memoranda of Understanding to coordinate their attacks. It would be a shame for the onslaught of misguided politicized investigations to continue. The American people expect more from those who represent them in Washington.”
