Cicilline Statement on Cohen Filings

Friday, December 7, 2018

PAWTUCKET – Democratic Policy and Communications Committee (DPCC) Chair David N. Cicilline (RI-01), who serves on the House Judiciary Committee, issued the following statement tonight:

 

“The Department of Justice has concluded that the President of the United States directed his personal attorney to commit two separate felonies. These are incredibly serious allegations. It is Congress’s responsibility to hold the President accountable if he has broken the law.”

 

“For the last two years, Republicans in the House have done everything they can to avoid the corruption surrounding this presidency. They should not wait for Democrats to take control in January. Republicans should work with us to immediately begin conducting real oversight of the President and his administration.”
