WASHINGTON, D.C. – Representative Jody Hice (R-GA), a member of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, today released the following statement in response to the appointment of Robert Mueller as special counsel by the Department of Justice:

“Former FBI Director Robert Mueller is well respected in Congress, as well as across the law enforcement and intelligence communities. Over the past year, we have seen what happens when the FBI gets bogged down in partisan politics and personal relationships receive more focus than the facts. I am hopeful that Director Mueller will rise above these controversies and will oversee this ongoing investigation with impartiality and a steady hand.

“Regardless of attempts to politicize the outcome, we must ensure that Director Mueller’s report, in conjunction with the findings of the ongoing investigations by the House and Senate Intelligence Committees, provides the country with a clear understanding of Russia’s efforts to impact the election and whether Trump officials were complicit in those efforts. It is worth noting, however, that both acting FBI Director McCabe and the former Director of National Intelligence, James Clapper, have refuted that notion.”

Help with a Federal Agency

One of the most important things I do as a U.S. Representative is help constituents work through issues with federal agencies. Although I cannot override the decisions made by a federal agency, I can often intervene on a constituent’s behalf to get answers to questions, find solutions, or just cut through the red tape. Below you will find a list of agencies with which I can help you. However, regardless of which agency you need help navigating, you must complete a privacy authorization form to comply with the provisions of the Privacy Act. Please download this printable version of the casework authorization form and then fax or mail to the address listed under the agency from which you are seeking assistance.
