House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes issued the following statement today on the Justice Department’s decision to appoint a special counsel to oversee the executive branch investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election:

“I strongly support this decision, and I commend Deputy U.S. Attorney General Rosenstein for his leadership. This is the right decision at the right time, and the right man was chosen for the job. Robert Mueller is a highly respected former FBI Director who has tremendous integrity, and I’m confident he will lead a credible investigation.”
