Official Statement from Mormon Women for Ethical Government with Regard to the Mueller Investigation

In light of the recent indictments in the inquiry led by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, we call upon Congress to enact legislation that will protect this critical investigation and ensure that the whole truth be uncovered. We further call on Congress to insist that proper checks and balances between branches of government be maintained so that anyone found guilty of serious crimes against our republic or of abusing constitutional powers throughout the course of this investigation be barred from returning to any position of public influence. In addition, we reject and will vigorously contest any proposal for unethical pardoning or any other obstruction of justice.

We appeal to our fellow citizens to respond to the ugly divisions that threaten our beloved nation not with increased animosity, but with greater unity, reaching out to one another in love and good will. We thank Special Counsel Mueller and his team for their tireless efforts on behalf of the values and ideals that define democracy and pray for their well-being and continued ability to discover truth and defend liberty.
