Statement from Rep. Capuano on the Firing of FBI Director James Comey

May 9, 2017

President Trump's firing of Director James Comey while the FBI is in the midst of an investigation into what role Trump campaign associates may have played in Russia's interference with the November election raises very serious questions. AG Sessions has already recused himself from the Russia investigation and now the President will choose the next FBI Director. In light of today's shocking action by the President, it is more important than ever that a thorough independent investigation commence. The American people and the integrity of our democracy deserve nothing less.
