This is a vindication of President Trump on the issue of Russian collusion. Congressional Democrats have long said we need to respect the findings of the Special Counsel and it’s time they put aside their hatred for President Trump and do just that.

I am pleased to see the release of Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller’s report, which confirms what many of us believed and what was outlined in the Attorney General’s memo: there was no collusion between President Trump, his campaign and the Russians.

I had a great visit to Corbion in Peoria this past week. The plant here is a unique facility that scales up the fermentation and processing of healthy algae-based food products. The company makes products such as cooking oils, proteins, and algae-based omega-3 ingredients.

The strengthened bond between our two countries must remain if our goal is to achieve lasting stability in the region. I will continue to be an advocate for our vast Lebanese-American community in Illinois' 18th District.

As the Lebanese gov't continues to stabilize, I underscored the importance of rooting out corruption and thwarting the influence of Iran and Hezbollah within Lebanon. It's critical the US continue to support an independent Lebanese Armed Forces (LAF).
