Representative Fulcher issues a statement regarding alleged investigation

Idaho Congressman Russ Fulcher issued an official statement on the Idaho Statesman’s and Huffington Post’s story on him being investigated for assault last month at the Capital.

Huffington Post’s Matt Fuller, who covers Congress, tweeted that police on Wednesday interviewed him about an incident he witnessed involving Fulcher at the metal detectors outside the House floor on Jan. 12 during debate about former President Donald Trump’s impeachment.

Fuller told the Statesman on Wednesday that he saw Fulcher aggressively manhandle a female officer after he set off the metal detectors. Fuller also said the officer appeared to step out of Fulcher’s way, but that Fulcher put his hands on her shoulders and pushed through her.

Fulcher’s official statement said “We are not aware of any investigation or interest other than a social media tweet. Should there be further inquiries, we look forward to formally setting the record straight on these fabricated media accusations. However, please keep in mind in this majority driven hostile political environment, neither truth nor fairness is the objective.”
