Rep. Kind’s Statement on Firing of FBI Director James Comey

May 9, 2017
Press Release

President Trump took unprecedented action and fired FBI Director James Comey. Below is Rep. Ron Kind’s statement on the firing:

"Today's rash decision by President Trump to fire FBI Director James Comey is a grotesque abuse of power. I am unaware of any justifiable reason that would show just cause for the firing of the FBI Director. I call on congressional leadership to schedule hearings so we can get to the bottom of this. I hope and pray this had nothing to do with the FBI's independent investigation into Russian interference and possible collusion of Trump associates with Russia during the 2016 election.”
