Cicilline Statement on Special Counsel Investigation

Monday, October 30, 2017

PAWTUCKET - Democratic Policy and Communications Committee (DPCC) Co-Chair David N. Cicilline (RI-01) issued the following statement this morning after Paul Manafort and Rick Gates were indicted:

“These are very serious charges. A federal grand jury has found probable cause that President Trump's former campaign manager committed crimes, including conspiracy against the United States.”

“In recent days, the President and Republicans in Congress have tried to put pressure on the Special Counsel to separate himself from this investigation. That cannot happen. Honoring the rule of law is more important than our political differences. It's critical that the Special Counsel's investigation be allowed to continue without interference or delay.”
