Congressman Leonard Lance (NJ-07) released the following statement on former FBI Director Robert Mueller being named special counsel for the Russia probe:

“Mr. Mueller will be an excellent addition to the Department of Justice probe already underway. 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.”
