Congressman Pallone Statement on Firing of FBI Director James Comey

May 10, 2017

Washington, DC – Congressman Frank Pallone, Jr. (NJ-06) released the following statement on the firing of FBI Director James Comey.

“The firing of James Comey is the latest, and perhaps most clear, example of the Trump administration's actions to impede accountability and transparency.‎ We now need not only a fully independent investigation into President Trump's ties with Russia, but an inquiry into his unprecedented decision to replace the Director of the FBI. My fear is that the Trump administration is trying to prevent Director Comey from revealing it's involvement with Russia and other improprieties."
