Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard Statement on Special Counsel Mueller’s Indictments
Washington, DC – Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard (HI-02) released the following statement on the indictment of President Trump’s former campaign chairman, Paul Manafort, and former Trump campaign official, Rick Gates. The indictment by a federal grand jury on 12 charges includes conspiracy against the United States:
“The indictments issued today against former Trump campaign official Paul Manafort and his associate, Rick Gates, coupled with news of George Papadopoulos’ indictment and plea deal, show our justice system at work. The staggering record of illegal money laundering and allegiances to foreign governments and political parties is astounding. The actions and allegations against these men, and likely others, demonstrates egregious conflicts of interest that further evidence the need for this investigation to run its course. The integrity of our democracy relies on our nation's leaders sacred promise to the American people that we are acting in their best interest, uncompromised by the interests of a foreign power or corporate special interests. This is not a partisan issue--all elected leaders, regardless of party affiliation, should be committed to ensuring that Special Counsel Mueller is able to continue his thorough, independent investigation,” said Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard.
