Fleischmann on Release of Mueller Report: “After two years of investigation, thousands of subpoenas, and hundreds of interviews we once again come to the conclusion that there was no collusion.”
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Chuck Fleischmann (TN-03) issued the following statement in response to the release of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report:
“I am pleased that the Mueller report has been made public, giving the American people the transparency they deserve and providing accountability in our democracy. After two years of investigation, thousands of subpoenas, and hundreds of interviews we once again come to the conclusion that there was no collusion. Furthermore, we know that Russian meddling in our election was an effort to sow uncertainty in our democracy and was furthered by Democrats’ false narrative and personal vendetta against the President. Today, the Special Counsel’s report was released to Congress but it is abundantly clear that Democrats are steadfast in their effort to prolong their dog and pony show of taxpayer-funded investigations regardless of the Special Counsel’s findings. There was no collusion, but there is a crisis at our southern border. I plan to spend my time addressing this national emergency and other challenges facing our nation.”

Fleischmann Reflects on Trip to Southern Border with President Trump: “When touring the miles of border wall with President Trump, border patrol agents made it clear that thanks to the new wall construction they are safer and able to do their job more efficiently.”
CALEXICO, CA – Congressman Chuck Fleischmann (TN-03) released the following statement upon conclusion of touring the southern border with President Trump in Calexico, California:
“I have always believed there was a crisis at our southern border, but upon the conclusion of my trip today I am more convinced than ever that immediate action is necessary. When speaking with border patrol personnel, it is clear they do not have the manpower or funds to properly secure our nation, and this issue must be addressed in Congress. The most important take away was that walls work. When touring the miles of border wall with President Trump, border patrol agents made it clear that thanks to the new wall construction they are safer and able to do their job more efficiently. The new wall is a step in the right direction toward a more secure nation, and we must continue this momentum. It was a privilege to tour the border with President Trump and my colleagues. Now it is time to get back to work, address our archaic asylum laws, provide more wall funding, give our law enforcement agents the resources they desperately need, and stop this humanitarian crisis.”
Fleischmann Travels with President Trump to Southern Border: “I hope to hear from the men and women in the trenches and gain a firsthand perspective of the humanitarian crisis threatening our nation.”
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Chuck Fleischmann (TN-03) released the following statement ahead of his trip with President Trump to Calexico, California.
“As I travel with President Trump to the border today, I hope to hear from the men and women in the trenches and gain a firsthand perspective of the humanitarian crisis threatening our nation. The spike in migration numbers is staggering and should sound the alarm to all Americans. I support the President as he works to build the wall along our southern border and stem the tide of deadly drugs, human trafficking, and illegal immigration pouring into our country.”
Congressman Fleischmann is the Top Republican on the House Appropriations Homeland Security subcommittee. The Congressman previously traveled to the southern border in February. More information from that visit can be found here.
Fleischmann on Border Crisis: “Congress must work with the Administration to fix our broken immigration system and secure our sovereignty.”
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Chuck Fleischmann (TN-03) issued the following statement in response to the crisis at the southern border:
“I recently visited the southwest border and clearly observed a crisis situation. In the past week, Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen – as well as President Obama’s former Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson – agreed the crisis has rapidly escalated to an unprecedented level.
“The core of our immigration crisis, stemming from our broken asylum laws, has resulted in an overwhelming surge of migrant caravans, unaccompanied minors, and family units. In 2018, Border Patrol apprehension of family units surpassed 100,000. That is a sharp contrast from the previous status quo of single males that migrated across the southern border. In response to the surge of family units, I advocated for additional ICE detention beds and fought to ensure an 18% increase in the number of detention beds was included in February’s conference committee report. However, it is painfully clear we must revisit this topic of discussion and respond to worsening conditions and inundated facilities.
“The way to effectively and honestly address the border crisis is for my colleagues from across the aisle to heed the remarks from Former DHS Secretary Johnson, who did not mince words when responding to the apprehension of over 4,000 migrants in a single day. We are a country of law and order, but our broken immigration system is crippling the ability of our border patrol personnel to enforce the rule of law. Congress must work with the Administration to fix our broken immigration system and secure our sovereignty.”
CHATTANOOGA, TN – Congressman Chuck Fleischmann (TN-03) issued the following statement upon hearing about the passing of Ed Westcott, photographer of the Manhattan Project:
“Ed Westcott was an American hero,” said Congressman Fleischmann. “Thanks to his brilliant eye and tireless work ethic, generations of Americans have had the opportunity to peek inside the once Secret City of Oak Ridge, learn about the incredible mission that was the Manhattan Project, and gain an understanding of our nation’s history. As the sole photographer of the Manhattan Project, his images connect the past to the present by telling the story of a time that would have otherwise gone undocumented. To honor his contributions, I joined with my colleagues in the Senate to nominate him for the Presidential Medal of Freedom – one of our nation’s the most highly regarded civilian awards and a fitting recognition for a true patriot. I am deeply saddened to learn of his passing but incredibly thankful to have known him. Ed was beloved by the East Tennessee community and will be sorely missed, but certainly never forgotten. My prayers are with his loved ones during this difficult time.”
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Chuck Fleischmann (TN-03) issued the following statement on Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report:
“Today we learned what myself, and a majority of the American people, have known all along: there was no collusion. For over two years, Democrats have perpetuated a false narrative, lied to their constituents, and left a stain on our nation’s history. The Mueller investigation was completed thoroughly and is now over. Rather than continuing their mudslinging tactics that have proven to bear no fruit, I urge my colleagues on the other side of the aisle to abandon their divisive rhetoric and get back to legislating for the good of our country.”
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Chuck Fleischmann (TN-03) issued the following statement after touring the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Cyber Crimes Center:
“I have always said that there are many aspects to the border security debate and my trip yesterday to the ICE Cyber Crimes Center reinforced this belief,” said Congressman Fleischmann. “Americans know there is an ongoing humanitarian crisis at the southern border, but there is also a much more silent, and equally as dangerous world of cyber threats that pose a serious risk to our national security. The ICE Cyber Crimes Center acts as the hub for cyber related investigations – from economic crimes, to child exploitation, and the investigation of the dark web’s role in facilitating illicit drugs – all of which present direct threats to our nation. The expertise housed at this facility is top-notch, and I am thankful for the work done there to protect our nation’s sovereignty against the bad actors of the cyber realm.”
CHATTANOOGA, TN – Congressman Chuck Fleischmann (TN-03) issued the following the Senate’s vote to confirm John Ryder to the board of the Tennessee Valley Authority:

I thank my colleagues in the Senate for voting to confirm him, and look forward to seeing all he will do for the Tennessee Valley. Congratulations, my friend!”
