Statement From Washington Post Editor on Trump-Russia Coverage
A statement from Executive Editor Marty Baron forwarded by Shani George, the Washington Post's Director of Communications:
Marty Baron of the Washington Post.
“We’re proud of The Post’s reporting. The special counsel investigation documented, as we reported, extensive Russian interference in the 2016 election and widespread deceit on the part of certain advisers to the president about Russian contacts and other matters. Numerous individuals have been criminally charged, with notable convictions. The Post also reported on the president’s efforts to intrude into the investigation. Our reporting never presupposed what the special counsel would conclude with regard to obstruction of justice or an actual conspiracy with the Russians. Our job is to bring facts to light. Others make determinations about prosecutable criminal offenses.”
