Senator Chuck Grassley of Iowa, former chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, today released the following statement regarding the principal conclusions of  Special Counsel Mueller’s investigation:

“The principal finding from Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation confirms what my own review found: there was no collusion between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin to influence the presidential election. These findings were reached after significant efforts to thoroughly and fully uncover the facts by a team of professional investigators.

“I look forward to reviewing more details about the steps Robert Mueller’s team took at taxpayer expense to reach these conclusions. In the meantime, this should serve as an opportunity for those who have engaged in baseless, irresponsible speculation the past few years simply because they do not like the President to reflect on how they have contributed to Putin’s goal of undermining American faith in our system of government. For the good of our nation, I hope that we all can accept the Justice Department’s findings and move forward.”
