Schneider Statement on Firing of AG Sessions
Congressman Brad Schneider (IL-10), a member of the House Judiciary Committee, released the following statement:
“Time and again, President Trump has worked to undermine the independence of the Justice Department and its investigation into Russian election interference led by Special Counsel Robert Mueller.
“It is critical that the investigation remain under the supervision of Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein. Congress should also take action to protect the Special Counsel from a politically motivated firing.
“The Mueller investigation must be allowed to continue to completion without interference from the White House. I remain committed to following the facts wherever they lead.”
