Eshoo Statement on President Trump Firing FBI Director Comey

May 10th, 2017

WASHINGTON, D.C— Congresswoman Anna Eshoo (D-CA) released the following statement after President Trump fired FBI Director James Comey:

“The firing of FBI Director James Comey, who was investigating the President and his ties to Russia, is deeply troubling. It is even more troubling that Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who said he would recuse himself from this investigation, played a direct role in Director Comey’s termination.

“The President fired Sally Yates, then he fired Preet Bharara, and now he has fired Director Comey, all people who were investigating the President. This is not a coincidence.

“I called for a bipartisan, independent commission to investigate the President and his ties to Russia long before his Administration began. The pattern of this Administration thus far shows that only an independent commission or special prosecutor, free from the grasp of the President, will be able to fully and credibly continue this investigation.”
