U.S. Rep. Kathy Castor (FL14) released the following statement after the indictment of former Trump Campaign officials:

“After reading the guilty plea and indictments of Trump Campaign officials, it is more apparent than ever that Special Counsel Robert Mueller and his team must be given latitude to get to the bottom of the Trump Campaign coordination with Russia and Russian meddling in our elections.  It is illegal for a foreign country and its agents to make political contributions to U.S. candidates and it is dangerous for a U.S. political campaign to conspire with a malign foreign power.  Former Trump Campaign Chairman Paul Manafort’s “pattern of illegal activity” and apparent money laundering are outrageous.  The guilty plea by a separate Trump Campaign foreign policy adviser for false statements relating to his “Russia updates” raises many additional questions that the Special Counsel must pursue.”
