Senator Tom Cotton Statement on Justice Department Report Concerning Russia Investigation

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 Bar 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.”
