WASHINGTON, D.C. – Representative Charlie Dent (PA-15) released the following statement regarding the appointment of former FBI Director Bob Mueller as special counsel:

“Former FBI Director Bob Mueller is a strong and capable investigator with an impeccable character who I believe is perfectly suited to carry out the investigation in the Russian interference in our nation’s 2016 election. It is important that the investigation follows the facts, seeks the truth, is conducted expeditiously, and then let the chips fall where they may. In the meantime, I hope that Congress can now refocus on its work to find solutions to the long list of pressing economic, infrastructure, and security needs facing our nation.”
