U.S. Senator Tammy Baldwin Statement on the Firing of FBI Director Comey
"President Trump’s decision to make this move tonight is an attack on the rule of law and raises more questions that demand answers."
“The President’s firing of the FBI Director comes at a time when the agency is actively investigating whether members of President Trump’s campaign colluded with Russia to influence the 2016 election. This law enforcement investigation must continue.
“Russia attacked our democracy and the American people deserve answers. President Trump’s decision to make this move tonight is an attack on the rule of law and raises more questions that demand answers. Firing the FBI Director does not place the White House, the President, or his campaign above the law.
“The Senate Intelligence Committee must continue their bipartisan investigation because Congress has a responsibility to get to the bottom of this in a transparent way. We also need a special prosecutor to lead a comprehensive and independent investigation that follows all the facts wherever they lead.”
