DNC on Russian Grand Jury

In response to reports that Special Counsel Mueller impaneled a grand jury in the Russian investigation and other developments, DNC CEO Jess O’Connell released the following statement:

“Special Counsel Mueller impaneling a grand jury is further confirmation that this is a serious investigation and not a ‘witch hunt.’ As the investigation proceeds, it is more important than ever that all of our leaders draw a line in the sand and make clear to the President that he must respect the rule of law and refrain from continuing the pattern of threats and interference he has engaged in over the past several months.  The American people deserve answers, and they deserve a president who will allow our system of justice to produce them.”
