Mueller Thursday and Good Friday
The Mueller Report is Released
On Thursday, the Mueller Report was released, which does not exonerate the President. Instead, it concludes that the Trump team was aware of and openly supportive of Russian attempts to interfere in the election because they “expected it would benefit electorally from information stolen and released through Russian efforts.” Further, it lays out ten instances of the President trying to obstruct the investigation and explicitly states that the decision not to charge the President was guided by a Trump Administration DOJ policy, not a lack of evidence.
Disturbingly, Attorney General Barr deliberately distorted significant portions of the Mueller Report, which have resulted in a crisis of confidence in his independence and impartiality. The only way to begin restoring public trust in the handling of the Special Counsel’s investigation is for Special Counsel Mueller himself to provide public testimony in the House and Senate as soon as possible. The American people deserve to hear the truth.
The integrity of our democracy is at stake. The Congress will continue to uphold our constitutional duty to hold the President accountable for his deceit, lies and improper behavior. No one is above the law.

My office worked closely with a constituent and the Social Security Administration (SSA) in ensuring his application for retirement was processed. The constituent applied many months ago, and it was important that he also begin receiving his Medicare health benefit in conjunction with his application. SSA apologized for the delay in processing the constituent’s claim, and his health benefit was made retroactive to January 2019, and he will begin receiving his financial benefit in April.
