Congressman Tom Reed and Senator Kirsten Gillibrand are responding to Attorney General William Barr’s summary statement of Special Council Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 Presidential Election.

Reed issued the following statement to 18 News Monday afternoon.

All politics all the time is tearing our country apart and hurting real people. After two years and more than $25 million in taxpayer money spent, the President has been exonerated. We must put people first and end this culture of division. The time is now for leaders to seize the opportunity to unite the country and put forward policies to help people.

Gillibrand tweeted Sunday afternoon for Barr to release Mueller’s report.

Barr released a four-page summary on Sunday of Mueller’s principal conclusions, writing that the special counsel did not draw a conclusion — one way or another — as to whether the examined conduct constituted obstruction.

Instead, Barr explained, for each of the relevant actions investigated, the report sets out evidence on both sides of the question and leaves unresolved what the Special Counsel views as difficult issues of law and fact concerning whether the President’s actions and intent could be viewed as obstruction.
