Sen. Peters Statement on Indictments in Russia Investigation

WASHINGTON, DC—U.S. Senator Gary Peters (MI) released the following statement on the indictments in the Russia investigation:

“I advocated for a special counsel because America needs a full investigation into Russian interference in our elections that is impartial and free from politics. There are many unanswered questions about Russia’s efforts to meddle in the 2016 election, and today’s indictments further demonstrate that Robert Mueller must be able to continue this independent investigation and follow the facts wherever they lead. Free and fair elections are the foundation of our democracy, and any outside interference is an issue of national security, not partisan politics.”
