Pelosi Statement on First Mueller Indictments


San Francisco – Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi released the following statement after news that former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort and associate Rick Gates have been ordered to surrender to federal custody today:

“Even with an accelerating Special Counsel investigation inside the Justice Department, and investigations inside the Republican Congress, we still need an outside, fully independent investigation to expose Russia’s meddling in our election and the involvement of Trump officials.  Defending the integrity of our democracy demands that Congress look forward to counter Russian aggression and prevent future meddling with our elections.”
