6th District Candidate Survey. Question 8: "Would you support legislation that would protect special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into the depth of Russian influence during the 2016 election?"
March 19, 2018
Muncie Resists just put out an excellent 15 question survey that was answered by all the primary candidates for the 6th District Democratic nomination. I am putting it on my blog for voters to view and compare the answers of the candidates in alphabetical order.
Question 8: Would you support legislation that would protect special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into the depth of Russian influence during the 2016 election?
George T. Holland: Only if there is sufficient evidence for his investigation. My fear is that this may turn out to be a "political' witch hunt. I am no fan of Mr. Trump. I am concerned about Hillary Clinton and her internet server and the destruction of official government e-mails. My concern is that Mrs. Clinton may have avoided indictment because of her political and financial connections to The Obama administration and The Democratic Party. "With Justice For All" has to apply to the Clintons also.
Jeannine Lee Lake: Yes. We, the people, have a right to question and investigate our government.
Kenneth (Jasen) Lave: Senatorial oversight is all that's necessary, at this point. Many Republicans are fine with Mueller's investigation. And a move to protect him without indication of interference might seem as politically-motivated overreach. (What's important is he be given every resource he needs, throughout. And Joe Donnelly has assured me they are watching closely.)
James Pruett: Yes.
Lane A. Siekman: Yes. We all deserve the truth. I remember Nixon's "Saturday Night Massacre" and nobody wants to see the nation go through that again. The special counsel must be protected. I can see this becoming a constitutional crisis and if elected to Congress, I will call for Congressional investigations and hearings similar to Watergate as well.
Joshua Williamson: Yes. This country needs to be kept safe.
