WASHINGTON D.C. – Today, U.S. Senators Thom Tillis (R-NC) and Chris Coons (D-DE), the bipartisan co-authors of the Special Counsel Integrity Act, released the following statement:

“We have heard from constituents – Republicans, Democrats, and Independents alike – who agree that Special Counsel Robert Mueller should be able to conduct his investigation without interference. This should not be a partisan issue. We introduced the Special Counsel Integrity Act because we believe that the American people should have confidence in the Department of Justice’s ability to conduct independent investigations and its commitment to the rule of law. We urge President Trump to allow the Special Counsel to complete his work without impediment, which is in the best interest of the American people, the President, and our nation.”
