NDP Chair Jane Kleeb issued an initial statement Thursday on Attorney General William Barr’s news conference before the release of the report by Special Counsel Robert Mueller on Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.
“It’s a fact that Russia meddled in our elections to undermine our Democracy, and yet President Trump continues to praise Russian President Vladimir Putin,” Kleeb said. “The Mueller report examined 10 episodes of obstruction of justice. Congress must do its job of getting the full report and not taking the Cliffs Notes version offered by Attorney General Barr. Nebraskans expect Rep. Bacon and the rest of the delegation to put aside their loyalty to Trump in this next phase of the process.”
