DeLauro Statement on Trump Firing FBI Director Comey
WASHINGTON, DC (May 10, 2017) — Congresswoman Rosa DeLauro (CT-03) today released the following statement regarding President Trump firing FBI Director James Comey.
“Let’s be clear about what just happened: the President of the United States fired the person leading the investigation into the President of the United States. The sudden firing of FBI Director James Comey deserves an urgent and thorough explanation by the White House, given the ongoing and active criminal investigation into the Trump campaign’s relations with the Russian government during the 2016 election. These events further underscore why I have continued to demand an independent commission with subpoena power in order to get to the bottom of the Russia investigation.”
