Statement from Congressman Dan Donovan on the Appointment of Robert Mueller as Special Counsel

May 17, 2017
Press Release

“I have complete confidence in the FBI and Justice Department, along with the House and Senate committees, to find out the facts. The public has a right to know what, if anything, happened, and if the appointment of a special counsel gets us there, then I support DOJ's decision. Robert Mueller has an impeccable reputation and has served in administrations of both parties. I trust that he will analyze the facts and reach an unbiased and objective conclusion based on the evidence. I was a prosecutor for most of my career, and withholding judgment until an investigation concludes is crucial to a fair and impartial proceeding.”
