Rep. Susan Davis Statement on Appointment of a Special Counsel
WASHINGTON – U.S. Rep. Susan Davis (D-San Diego) released the following statement on the appointment of Robert Mueller as Special Counsel for the Trump/Russia investigation.
“There is no question Robert Mueller is capable of leading a thorough and competent investigation into the Trump/Russia connection. The question is whether the President will attempt to influence the investigation of the Special Counsel, who must ultimately answer to the him. While I support this appointment, it’s critical that congressional investigations move forward and an independent commission is established to look into the activities and intent of major players regarding Russian influence into the election.”
