WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Mike Braun released the following statement following Attorney General Barr's testimony before the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee:
“Attorney General Barr kept his word to provide as much transparency on Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report as he could provide. Today, he clearly explained why the Department of Justice concluded there was insufficient evidence to bring obstruction of justice charges after the special counsel did not reach a conclusion and delegated this decision to DOJ, and fairly responded to questions on his concern about spying on the Trump campaign and the troubling origins of the FBI’s probe.
"Our country is fortunate to have Bill Barr, a man of integrity who has served two U.S. Presidents, as our Attorney General. After two years of partisan attacks filled with inaccurate rumors and speculation, it's time for the country to move forward and focus on real issues like lowering the cost of prescription drugs.”
