Robert Mueller appeals to Congress to investigate Trump and act on Russia

Robert Mueller concluded his brief remarks today with a direct call for action, putting pressure on members of Congress to do more to investigate Russia’s role in the 2016 election: “I will close by reiterating the central allegation of our indictments-that there were multiple, systematic efforts to interfere in our election,” he said about his two-year investigation into Russian meddling. “That allegation deserves the attention of every American.” These would be his final words on the topic, Mueller said, noting he would not appear in front of Congress or further speak publicly about the investigation. Mueller made several remarks about US president Donald Trump’s innocence or lack thereof during his press conference, noting that when a subject of an investigation obstructs or lies to investigators, it strikes “at the core of the government’s effort to find the truth.” In his statement, Mueller is directly appealing to Congress to act, said Justin Amash, the Michigan representative who is the sole Republican in Congress to say publicly that the Mueller report calls for further investigation. The White House is refusing to cooperate with multiple Democratic investigations into the subject in the House. A State Department unit created to fight propaganda in US elections after the 2016 election remains unfunded, and the Department of Homeland Security, which is tasked with election security, is in chaos after a series of high-profile departures.
