April 18, 2019

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Senate Select Committee on Intelligence Chairman Richard Burr (R-NC) issued the following statement on the Department of Justice’s release of Counsel Robert Mueller’s report:

“I appreciate Attorney General Barr’s commitment to publicly releasing the full report, excepting material that would compromise intelligence sources and methods, ongoing DOJ prosecutions, or legally protected grand jury information. The American people have a right to review as much of the report as possible to understand the Special Counsel’s conclusions and the reasoning behind them.

“I am reviewing Special Counsel Mueller’s report carefully. Furthermore, I look forward to presenting the American people with an accounting of the facts the Committee has uncovered as we conclude our own investigation. It is my hope to release the first of our final reports in the coming weeks.”
