“I am extremely troubled by the ongoing and credible allegations of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia to influence the 2016 election,” said Gutierrez, a longtime skeptic of the Russia investigation. “I am outraged that House Republicans are directly contradicting the president by investigating Russia’s interference in the election.”
