Rep. Tom Cole, R-Oklahoma
Published April 18, 2019
NORMAN, Okla. — Rep. Tom Cole (OK-04), released the following statement after Attorney General William Barr released to the public a redacted version of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report.
“While I applaud Attorney General Barr for allowing Congress to review Special Counsel Mueller’s report and making it publicly available for Americans to read for themselves, it doesn’t change the prior conclusions of the 22-month investigation. Redacted or not, the report confirms that there was no collusion between Russia and President Donald Trump’s campaign, nor was there sufficient evidence to justify indictment for obstruction of justice. The thorough investigation is over. The results are clearly in. Now it’s time for Democrats to also conclude with their politically-motivated investigations and their dubious charges against the president.”
Rep. Cole is one of two American Indian men iserving in the 116th Congress. He is a tribal citizen of the Chickasaw Nation, based in Ada, Oklahoma.
