Peters Statement on Appointment of Special Counselor in Russia Investigation

WASHINGTON, DC - U.S. Senator Gary Peters (MI) today released the following statement on Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein's appointment of former FBI Director Robert Mueller to serve as special counsel in the Russia investigation:

"Russia's unprecedented interference into our election threatens our national security and the very foundation of our democracy. The appointment of Robert Mueller as special counsel is a good first step toward a thorough investigation that is free from political pressure or interference. The American people deserve to know the facts about Russian efforts to disrupt the 2016 election, any involvement with the Trump campaign, and any attempt by the President or other officials to improperly influence the FBI. The facts alone should drive this investigation.”
