Bonamici Statement on Firing of FBI Director Comey

WASHINGTON, DC [05/10/17] – Today Congresswoman Suzanne Bonamici (D-OR) issued the following statement after James Comey was fired as the Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI):

“The President’s abrupt firing of FBI Director Comey is disturbing. I have spent the last several weeks holding town hall meetings around NW Oregon, and people are understandably outraged about Russia's interference in our election and this administration's connections with Russia. To restore confidence in government, we must have an independent investigation. It must begin immediately, and the results must be transparent and available to the public.”
