Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein made the right choice to appoint a Special Counsel to investigate and prosecute crimes related to Russian interference in our elections. This is a positive development and I am cautiously confident that the process will follow the facts. The Special Counsel must now have the resources to conduct a complete and thorough investigation, and should be truly independent from political pressure exerted by President Trump and Attorney General Sessions. However, this appointment does not diminish the need for an independent commission. The American people deserve answers and the truth regarding Russian meddling in our democracy and President Trump’s ties to Russia.

I am extremely disturbed by reports that President Trump revealed highly classified information regarding the fight against the Islamic State to senior Russian officials. When Russian interests in Syria and elsewhere are opposed to our own, this reckless disclosure endangers our troops, our intelligence community, our allies, and our national security. This is unacceptable and alarming.
