Cotton Statement on Justice Department Report Concerning Russia Investigation

Washington, D.C. — After the Department of Justice released Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s report on the origins of the Russia investigation, Senator Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas) released the following statement:

“The Inspector General’s report is clear that top officials at the FBI
launched a highly improper, intrusive investigation into the president’s campaign and associates during the 2016 election while suppressing and omitting critical evidence. I agree with Attorney General Barr that this was a clear abuse of the FISA process and the Department of Justice must take steps to restore integrity and credibility in the wake of this failure.”
