FRIENDSHIP HEIGHTS, MD – Following the release of the redacted Mueller report, presidential candidate John Delaney releases the following statement:
“The origin of the Mueller investigation was the existence of extensive Russian interference in the 2016 election, which remains one of the most consequential events in the history of American election integrity.
“The findings of the Mueller Report confirm the fact that Trump tried to limit, or even thwart, an investigation into these activities, and in doing so put the election security of the United States of America at risk.
“With the noise surrounding the report we should not lose sight of this: The integrity of our elections were threatened by a foreign power – all 17 U.S. intelligence agencies confirmed this. For his own self-interest, the President tried to act like this didn’t happen.
“Imagine a foreign warship parked off our shores and a President ignoring it? This to me is a central conclusion from the last two years and we should never lose sight of this. The truth is we need a President who always puts the security of our nation first. No matter what.”
