WASHINGTON, D.C.—House Republican Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) released the following statement regarding Attorney General Barr’s announcement that he has received the completed report from Special Counsel Robert Mueller:

“Like most Americans, I am glad to see that this investigation, which has taken nearly two years and cost tens of millions of dollars, has finally come to a close. The reports that there will be no new indictments confirm what we’ve known all along: there was never any collusion with Russia. The only collusion was between Democrats and many in the media who peddled this lie because they continue to refuse to accept the results of the 2016 election. I am glad Attorney General Barr will now be able to review the report, and I look forward to Congress being fully briefed on its findings, including the cost to taxpayers.”
