WASHINGTON, DC – U.S. Representative Mark Pocan (WI-02) today released the following statement regarding Attorney General William Barr’s press conference and the Mueller report being released to members of Congress and the general public.

“I look forward to personally reviewing the 10 separate obstruction episodes Attorney General Barr was so eager to contradict during this morning’s political charade of a press conference. It is shameful that the Attorney General so willfully engaged in a spin effort against the findings of the Mueller report just because the President’s feelings were “hurt”. The fact remains that at least 16 people involved in the President’s campaign had at least 102 contacts with representatives of the Kremlin, and that Robert Mueller’s team indicted 34 people in connection with his investigation – 7 of whom have already pled guilty,” Pocan said. “Guilty pleas from George Papadopoulos – former Trump campaign foreign policy adviser, Paul Manafort – Trump’s former campaign chair, Rick Gates – a former Trump campaign aide, Michael Flynn – Trump’s former national security adviser, and Michael Cohen – Trump’s former personal lawyer, are telling. No amount of spin can erase the record that already exists.
