ROSEN STATEMENT ON FORMER FBI DIRECTOR COMEY’S WRITTEN TESTIMONY

June 7, 2017
Press Release

WASHINGTON, DC - Today, Congresswoman Jacky Rosen (NV-03) released the following statement after reading the opening statement from former FBI Director James Comey for tomorrow’s scheduled Senate Intelligence Committee hearing:

 

“The prepared remarks offered by the former FBI Director are deeply worrying. I am especially concerned by the President’s attempts to interfere in the FBI’s work by asking about dropping investigations into Michael Flynn and ties between the Trump campaign and Russia. It disturbs me to know that the President would ask our chief law enforcement officer for his loyalty in exchange for job security, and then fire him in the middle of an ongoing investigation. The American people deserve answers and I hope Mr. Comey will elaborate on his interactions with the President during his testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee tomorrow. The need for an independent commission has never been more important. I hope that Congress will be able to bring this to fruition and follow the facts in addition to the House and Senate Intelligence committees’ hearings. ”
