Washington, DC — U.S. Representative Randy Hultgren (IL-14) released a statement following the appointment of former FBI Director Robert Mueller as special counsel:

“The appointment of former FBI Director Robert Mueller to serve as special counsel on Russia's involvement in the 2016 election is a welcome addition to the ongoing effort to establish the facts. Mueller proved himself as a well-respected and professional law enforcement official during his 12 years at the helm of the FBI. We all just want the facts to come out. Mueller’s fair and even-handed approach will ensure he follows the evidence, brings forth the facts and illuminates the truth.”
