Former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney, now a US senator from Utah, said Friday he was “sickened’’ and “appalled’’ by the details in the Mueller report.

“I am sickened at the extent and pervasiveness of dishonesty and misdirection by individuals in the highest office of the land, including the President,’’ he said in a statement posted to Twitter.

“I am also appalled that, among other things, fellow citizens working in a campaign for president welcomed help from Russia — including information that had been illegally obtained; that none of them acted to inform American law enforcement; and that the campaign chairman was actively promoting Russian interests in Ukraine,’’ the statement said.
