The Justice Department’s decision to bring in former FBI director Robert S. Mueller III as special counsel for the Trump campaign/Russia investigation got a nod of approval from Leonard Lance (R-NJ7) on Wednesday evening.
“Mr. Mueller will be an excellent addition to the Department of Justice probe already underway,” Lance said in a statement obtained by Save Jersey. “He’s respected on both sides of the aisle, which should inspire bipartisan confidence in the ongoing investigation. There can no interruption in getting to the truth. The American people deserve answers on Russia as soon as a thorough investigation can be completed.”
