MONTGOMERY — Alabama Republican Party Chairwoman Terry Latham has released a statement in response to a final report of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into possible Russian interference in the 2016 election to Attorney General William P. Barr. Mueller has handed over the investigation to the Department of Justice, recommending no new indictments.
Latham said that the investigation is now complete and it is time to move on and learn from the past.

“With the Mueller Report complete proving no Russian collusion involving the Trump campaign, it is now time to take a hard look at this entire dark chapter of our nation’s history,” Latham said. “The malfeasance of the national media has undermined their credibility. Their obvious slanted coverage of the 2016 presidential campaign and the first two years of the Trump Administration is simply ‘deplorable.’ No president, regardless of their political affiliation, should ever be subjected to such prejudicial accusations by the media in an attempt to destroy a presidency. To do so is an affront to the American people who make these decisions and to our nation’s democracy.
“Any national media outlet that participates in a mission of ‘seek and destroy’ to sink a president hurts themselves while using ‘freedom of the press’ as a tool to twist facts, perpetuate rumors and stack headlines. America rejects being spoken down to by the national media and DC elite. Trust is broken and needs to be repaired.
“Now let’s keep Making America Great Again – celebrating Alabama’s new unemployment rate of 3.7 percent – the lowest ever recorded in our great state’s history.”
