Heinrich Statement On Release Of Mueller Report

WASHINGTON, D.C. (April 18, 2019) - U.S. Senator Martin Heinrich (D-N.M.), a member of the Senate Intelligence Committee, made the following statement after Attorney General William Barr’s press conference in advance of the release of special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s report: 

"We have gotten to the point where we are analyzing whether the full sum of President Trump and his team’s conduct during the campaign and subsequent investigation after taking office rises to the level of being criminal. There appears to be disagreement on that point even within the Department of Justice, but no matter the answer, it is a sad state for the country. I am eager to read the full report and for the public to hear Special Counsel Mueller’s testimony so they have the information necessary to demand accountability and to protect our democracy."
