Press Release

PEORIA, IL — Congressman Darin LaHood (IL-18) released the following statement today following the release of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report on his investigation in collusion between President Trump’s campaign and Russia.

“I am pleased to see the release of Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller’s report, which confirms what many of us believed and what was outlined in the Attorney General’s memo: there was no collusion between President Trump, his campaign and the Russians. This is a vindication of President Trump on the issue of Russian collusion,” stated Rep. LaHood. “Congressional Democrats have long said we need to respect the findings of the Special Counsel and it’s time they put aside their hatred for President Trump and do just that. Instead of wasting more taxpayer money on investigations about the 2016 election, it’s time to move on and work together on important legislative issues Americans sent us to Washington to fix, such as infrastructure funding, international trade, bringing down the cost of prescription drugs and career technical education for our workforce.”
