Congressman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) released the following statement after the U.S. Department of Justice appointed special counsel to oversee the federal investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election.
 
Congressman Darrell Issa was the one of the first House Republicans to call for the appointment of an independent investigator on Real Time with Bill Maher back in February.

I have faith that Robert Mueller will provide the independence necessary to be sure this investigation is conducted with the trust and confidence of the American people.”
