Welch Statement in Response to Charges Filed Against Three Former Trump Campaign Officials


Location: Washington, DC

Rep. Peter Welch (D-VT) issued the following statement in response to the charges filed against three former Trump campaign officials, including campaign chairman and chief strategist Paul Manafort, in the ongoing investigation by special counsel Robert Mueller into Russian efforts to influence the 2016 presidential election.

"Today's indictments mark the beginning of the American people finally getting a definitive answer to the central question of what then-candidate Donald Trump and his associates knew about Russian efforts to influence the outcome of our 2016 election, and to what extent, if any, they colluded in this sinister effort.

After reading news accounts of the charges against Mr. Manafort, I am mystified at how Donald Trump could have hired an individual with such a shady background as his top campaign official.

It is clear that Mr. Mueller is methodically and systematically following the facts, as he should. I remain confident he will get to the bottom of this mess and hold accountable anyone who broke the law."
