Alabama Republican Party Chairman Terry Lathan blasted Democrats and members of the media, following Thursday's release of a redacted version of the report by special counsel Robert Mueller. The report concluded that there was no evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia during the 2016 election.
Lathan issued the following statement:
"Thursday’s release of the Mueller Report confirms what we've known all along – no Russian collusion, no conspiracies and no White House interference. In fact, the report shows complete cooperation by the White House which declined to use its executive privilege.
"Since President Trump was elected by our nation’s citizens, Democrats and the mainstream media have spent their time making endless attacks on the president, spreading irresponsible propaganda and trying to manhandle a false narrative that they wanted. It’s been a shameful and despicable display of their agenda – destroy this presidency at all cost. No president, regardless of their party affiliation, should ever be put through these inexcusable actions. Shame on all who participated in this deplorable charade.
"It’s time to stop focusing on these baseless accusations and get to work making America great again. President Trump’s policies are working and our historic economy shows it."
