Rep. Meeks Statement on Appointment of Special Prosecutor
Washington, D.C.—Congressman Gregory W. Meeks released the following statement regarding the appointment of former FBI Director Robert Mueller as special prosecutor, leading the investigation into President Trump’s ties to Russia:
“One revelation after another led the DOJ to finally appoint a special prosecutor and I applaud the DOJ's decision to follow through. The multitude of Americans who have great concern about President Trump's ties to Russia deserve nothing less than a thorough and impartial investigation free of political influence.
“While this appointment was necessary it isn't sufficient; we still need to establish an independent commission immediately. I hope my Republican colleagues will follow suit and do what is right by the American people.”
