WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Senator Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.) questioned Attorney General William Barr on Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report during the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing.

On the Politicization of Law Enforcement Agencies 

BLACKBURN: What seems to have happened at the FBI is that there is a seedy, cynical, political culture within a group that developed, and these individuals, collectively, seemed to think that they could work within the power of their jobs and their roles with the federal government. There was an elitism and an arrogance there and it speaks to a very unhealthy work culture.

On the Special Counsel Team’s Investigation and Findings 

BLACKBURN: Are they meticulous investigators who will hunt down every witness and every piece of evidence?
BARR: I think they are tenacious investigators.
BLACKBURN: Are they devoted to finding the truth?
BARR: Yes.
BLACKBURN: Are they masters at taking down hardened criminals foreign and domestic? 
BARR: Yes.
BLACKBURN: If there were evidence to warrant a recommendation for collusion charges against the president do you believe the Special Counsel team would have found it?
BARR: Yes.
BLACKBURN: And if there were evidence to warrant a recommendation for obstruction of justice charges against the president, do you believe the Mueller team would have found it?
BARR: I think that they canvassed the evidence exhaustively and they didn’t reach a decision on that.

On Americans’ Trust in Government Agencies 

BLACKBURN: People want to see government held accountable. They want to see agencies act with accountability to the American people, and they don’t want to ever see this happen again. It doesn’t matter if a candidate is a Democrat, a Republican, or an Independent. They never want to see this happen again.
