WASHINGTON – Today, the top Republican on the House Appropriations Committee, Rep. Kay Granger, issued the following statement on the conclusion of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report.

“For more than two years, Democrats have spent countless hours and resources perpetuating a false narrative to undermine the Administration and its efforts. There was a thorough and non-partisan investigation; they spent around $30 million taxpayer dollars and utilized the full weight of the FBI to scrutinize every aspect of the claims. Special Counsel Mueller found that there was no collusion between President Trump or his campaign and Russia. We deserve better from our leaders than feckless fearmongering. It is my hope that my colleagues on the other side of the aisle put an end to their destructive and divisive rhetoric and get back to the work of the American people.”
