Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) released the following statement today after Deputy AttorneyGeneral Rod Rosenstein appointed former FBI director Robert Mueller as special counsel for the investigation into Russian interference with the 2016 presidential election:

"Mr. Mueller is widely respected for his independence and professionalism. I have confidence that he will conduct a fair and thorough investigation. For the sake of the country, all parties must fully cooperate with his efforts that are focused on Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election. This effort should in no way be allowed to impede the ability of the Senate Intelligence Committee to conduct and conclude its investigation into the same subject. It is my hope that these investigations will now move expeditiously.”
