Scott Statement on President Trump’s Firing of FBI Director James Comey

May 10, 2017
Press Release

NEWPORT NEWS, VA – Congressman Bobby Scott (VA-03) issued the following statement on President Donald Trump’s firing of FBI Director James Comey:

“The President’s firing of FBI Director Comey is alarming; especially in light of the Bureau’s ongoing investigation of the Trump campaign’s alleged ties to Russia. The Department of Justice must immediately appoint a special prosecutor to ensure an independent and thorough investigation of these allegations. Additionally, Congress must establish a non-partisan commission to further investigate Russia’s interference with the 2016 presidential election. These actions will safeguard any investigation from political interference by either the President or Congress.”
