MUELLER’S WORK IS DONE
The reactions of Otsego County’s top Republican and Democrat differed to the news Special Counsel Robert Mueller has completed his investigation of Russian involvement in the 2016 Presidential campaign and transmitted his finding to the Justice Department.
Given the news was not released until 5 p.m. on a Friday suggests it “contains little information the author wants people to know,” said county Republican Chairman Vince Casale, Cooperstown, when asked for his initial reaction to the news.
His Democratic counterpart, County Chair Aimee Swan of Oneonta, said, “I have faith in the integrity of our Justice Department and Robert Mueller’s investigation,” said the county Democratic Chair Aimee Swan. “I think we the people deserve to see all the report that can legally be released. I look forward to hearing the findings.”
“This is certainly long-awaited,” Casale said, adding, “I will reserve final judgment until the report is made public.”
