Greg Walden statement on appointment of special counsel to FBI investigation

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- U.S. Rep. Greg Walden (R-Hood River) released the following statement on the appointment of special counsel Robert Mueller to oversee the FBI's Russia investigation:

“I respect the independence of the Department of Justice, and their decision to appoint a special counsel to oversee the FBI’s investigation. Robert Mueller is the right man for the job. He has an impeccable record of integrity and ability. His work will augment ongoing bipartisan investigations, which are already underway in both the House and Senate. The FBI and the Congressional Committees must follow all leads and get to the facts. As I have said before, foreign countries have no business messing with our elections."
