Washington, DC – Congresswoman Barbara Comstock made the following statement after the termination of her former Justice Department colleague FBI Director James Comey:

“Both Democrats and Republicans attacked the FBI Director at various times for various reasons and called for his ouster. However, I can’t defend or explain tonight’s actions or timing of the firing of FBI Director James Comey. The FBI investigation into the Russian impact on the 2016 election must continue. There must be an independent investigation that the American people can trust.”
