Pelosi Statement on Testimony of Special Counsel Mueller
Washington, D.C. – Speaker Nancy Pelosi issued this statement after Special Counsel Mueller agreed to come to Congress to publicly testify on July 17:
“We are pleased that the American people will hear directly from Special Counsel Mueller. Our national security is being threatened and the American people deserve answers.
“The Mueller Report revealed that the Russians waged a ‘sweeping and systematic’ attack on our elections, and America’s top intelligence and law enforcement officials have warned that the Russians will attack our elections again. Yet, sadly the President calls it a hoax, and suggests that he would welcome Russian interference again.
“Members of Congress must honor our oath and our patriotic duty to follow the facts, so we can protect our democracy.”
