Press Release

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congresswoman Elizabeth Esty (CT-5) today released the following statement regarding Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein’s appointment of former FBI Director Robert Mueller as Special Counsel to oversee the investigation into Russian interference in recent U.S. elections:
“Russia has engaged in a campaign to interfere in our elections, undermine our democracy, and weaken our nation. The American people deserve to know the full scope of Russia’s activities, including who within the United States may have participated. The appointment of Robert Mueller as Special Counsel is an immensely positive step toward determining the facts and preventing future attacks on our democratic institutions.”
