WASHINGTON – Congressman Steve Womack (AR-3) today released the following statement after Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein appointed former FBI Director, Robert Mueller, as special counsel to investigate Trump associates involvement with Russian officials:
“Given the number and severity of the claims that have arisen – and the fact that these claims are coming from anonymous sources and the media, it’s important the American people now get the facts from an independent investigation. They deserve the truth. I have the utmost confidence in former director Mueller’s ability to lead an independent investigation and give the people what they deserve – the truth.”
Congressman Steve Womack has represented Arkansas’s Third Congressional District since 2011 and serves on the House Appropriations Defense, Military Construction-Veterans Affairs, and Labor-Health and Human Services subcommittees and the House Committee on the Budget.
