Congressman Higgins issues statement on release of Mueller report


WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Clay Higgins (R-LA) issued the following statement after today’s public release of the Mueller Report

The Special Counsel’s findings have been voluntarily made public today. I’ve supported this release and it should be noted that the redactions were minimal, in accordance with the law, and, of key significance, was not further redacted by Executive Privilege. There was no evidence of criminal collusion or obstruction by the President nor his campaign. Democrats, on the other hand, should take a deep breath because the witch hunt they began has now shifted to the frightening reality of possible criminal collusion to corrupt our 2016 presidential election by their own candidate and her allies. Further, while this chapter of the investigation is closed, I have serious concerns regarding potential abuse of the FISA process by politically-biased actors within the FBI. The American people deserve to know the full truth, the whole truth. If criminal political corruption existed at the highest levels of the Obama executive and the Clinton campaign, and if top DOJ officials violated long-established protocol to spy on President Trump’s 2016 campaign, then some Americans should go to prison.”
