ROSEN STATEMENT ON REPORTS OF PRESIDENT TRUMP REQUESTING FBI DIRECTOR COMEY TO STOP INVESTIGATION OF MICHAEL FLYNN
WASHINGTON, DC – Today, Congresswoman Jacky Rosen (NV-03) released the following statement after new reports concerning a memo written by former FBI Director James Comey indicating that President Trump asked him to end a federal investigation into former Trump National Security Advisor Michael T. Flynn:
“If what is being reported is true, then this goes beyond the pale for any sitting President. Each day, it becomes clearer that we need an immediate independent investigation to restore public integrity for the justice department, which is leading the charge on the Trump-Russia investigation.
“Former FBI Director Comey should testify before the Senate Intelligence committee during an open hearing immediately. The President’s alleged actions may not only indicate an extreme use of influence, but potential obstruction of justice, which is extremely severe.”
