U.S. Rep. Fred Upton, R-St. Joseph, today issued the following statement:

“Russia is not our ally. As I’ve said all along – I trust our intelligence community’s assessment about Russian meddling in our election and fully support the independent Mueller investigation. My position has not changed.

“We must continue following the facts wherever they lead. We must continue holding Russia accountable for their destabilizing actions.”

In July of 2017, Upton voted in favor of expanded economic sanctions on Russia in retaliation for their cyber-attacks on U.S. institutions.
