UTICA, N.Y - In a phone interview with News Channel 2, Congressman Anthony Brindisi spoke on the long awaited Mueller Report's completion.

"Obviously the underlying premise of the Mueller report was whether or not a foreign entity interfered in our elections in 2016 and what if any connections their were to the trump campaign.So I'm anxiously awaiting to see what the results are and I hope the full report is made public to everyone as soon as possible because the American people have a right to know," said Brindisi.

A summary of the report was released late Sunday afternoon, the results being no collusion between the President and Russia during the 2016 elections.

The summary by Attorney General William Barr says that the Trump Administration did not conspire with Russia during the 2016 elections. We asked the congressman on the process congress will take to see the full report if it is not released in its entirety.

"We will have to cross that bridge if and when we come to it. But I fully expect the full report to be made public. You've had democrats and republicans say that on capitol hill we voted overwhelmingly with no no votes saying that the report should be made public and the president himself has indicated that it should be made public," said Brindisi.

If congress did find anything impeachable in the full report, would congress go through with that process?

"Well as I said in the past, it would be a high bar for me to support any sort of impeachment. We have a lot of issues that we need to work on as a country unrelated to investigations such as health care such as infrastructure, such as lowering cost of prescription drugs. I dont want to get bogged down over the next year and a half over endless investigations at a time when the American public is screaming for us to get to work and actually pass some legislation that is actually going to help the American people, said Brindisi".

Full statement from the Congressman regarding Attorney General Barr’s summary of the Mueller report:

“I am in the process of carefully reviewing General Barr’s summary of Special Counsel Mueller’s report; however, I believe Americans deserve to know all the facts. That’s why I joined Republican and Democratic members in voting yes on a resolution calling for the report to be made public. The American people deserve full transparency. They also deserve leaders who are focused on solving problems for everyday people - lowering health care costs, serving our veterans, and creating jobs and opportunity. Our challenges are too great to be distracted by endless partisanship and investigations.”
