Connolly Statement on the Firing of FBI Director Comey
Congressman Gerry Connolly (D-VA) released the following statement on President Trump's firing of FBI Director James Comey:
"President Trump fires FBI Director Comey in the midst of his investigation into Trump aides coordinating with Russia to interfere with our election. If it were about previous misjudgements, this would have happened in January. Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein is an enabler and this decision obstructs the investigation. Shades of the Saturday Night Massacre and Archibald Cox. Republicans must finally join our call for a special prosecutor. That is the only way to restore credibility."
