Cicilline Statement on Firing of FBI Director Comey

Wednesday, May 10, 2017

PAWTUCKET - U.S. Congressman and Democratic Policy and Communications Committee Co-Chair (DPCC) David N. Cicilline (D-RI), a member of the House Judiciary Committee, issued the following statement after President Donald Trump fired FBI Director James Comey:

"I am deeply concerned by this news. President Trump just terminated FBI Director Comey in the middle of an investigation into collusion between Vladimir Putin's regime and the Trump campaign. To say that this raises significant questions would be an enormous understatement."

"The American people deserve the truth. The truth about Donald Trump's business interests in Russia. The truth about collusion between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin. And, most importantly, the truth about what the President knew and when he knew it."

"It's now more important than ever that Congress establish an independent, bipartisan commission outside Donald Trump's Justice Department to uncover the whole truth."
