PRESS RELEASE: Soderberg: DeSantis’ measure to block Trump investigation is outrageous.

(Crescent Beach) - Former U.N. Ambassador and Deputy National Security Advisor Nancy Soderberg, who is running to replace Ron DeSantis in Florida’s 6th Congressional District, issued the following statement:

"In an outrageous move, Congressman DeSantis has filed a motion to undermine Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into connections between the Trump campaign and Russian actors.

“While DeSantis’ willingness to play politics with the integrity of our elections is nothing new, this move could set a dangerous partisan precedent and seriously undermine the future credibility of American elections.

“Robert Muller’s work at the FBI earned him a reputation for fairness and balance, and he has shown that he can serve and pursue justice regardless of which political party the President belongs. Congressman DeSantis’ decision to inject partisanship into this investigation hurts his own credibility and does a disservice to our community and the American people. We have a right to know the facts.

“As a former Deputy National Security Advisor, I know firsthand how dangerous DeSantis’ attempt to shut down this investigation is. If there was collusion between Russia and anyone in our government, it must be brought into the light.”
