Reaction to Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report is coming in fast and furious. Here’s what we’re hearing from a few of Michigan’s leaders.

Michigan Senator Gary Peters said in a statement the whole report needs to be released as quickly as possible because, “The summary letter from the attorney general to congress is insufficient and leaves many important, unanswered questions.”

Peters said the American people, “Deserve the facts and transparency.

Congresswoman Elissa Slotkin is calling for the same thing. Slotkin is a democrat who represents ingham and livingston counties. She said she has a lot of respect for mueller, but that she and every American should have the chance to read his report for themselves.

Slotkin said, “Two weeks ago, congress unanimously voted to make mueller’s full report public and that is what the attorney general should do.”

Republican congressman Tim Walberg, whose district includes jackson and eaton counties, said this report shows that it’s time for the country to move on.

Walberg said, “Rather than doubling down on more politically-motivated investigations of president trump, it is time to move forward as a country and focus on the pocketbook and security issues that matter to the american people.”

Michigan GOP Chairman Laura Cox said, “After two years and millions of wasted taxpayer dollars, the American people now know the truth, this was just a democrat led witch hunt.”
