FBI Investigation into Links Between Trump/Russia Highlights Need for Special Prosecutor

In response to FBI Director James Comey’s testimony to the the House Intelligence Committee about investigations into Russian interference in the 2016 election, Congresswoman Gwen Moore (WI-04) released the following statement:

By - Mar 20th, 2017 12:53 pm

“Today, before the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, FBI Director James Comey confirmed his agency was actively investigating efforts by President Vladimir Putin’s regime to disrupt the 2016 presidential election, as well as links between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin. Such revelations not only underscore the imperative for a thorough investigation conducted by a special prosecutor, but also emphasize the need for transparency in regards to the president’s foreign financial ties and business dealings.

“Concerns over President Trump’s ongoing reluctance to clarify his administration’s connection to Russian officials reach far across the partisan divide. Both Democrats and Republicans in the House of Representatives have heard from their constituents who are rightfully frustrated over the lack of accountability in such an urgent matter. As I’ve said before, the administration needs to remove U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions from his position and appoint a special prosecutor immediately.”
