Kuster Reaction to the Firing of FBI Director James Comey

Concord, N.H., May 10, 2017

(Concord, NH) – Congresswoman Annie Kuster (NH-02) released the following statement on the firing of Federal Bureau of Investigation Director James Comey:

“I have serious concerns about the circumstances of James Comey’s firing. Mr. Comey has had multiple missteps in recent months that have politicized the Federal Bureau of Investigation but the timing of his dismissal raises red flags. The American people deserve a qualified successor who will restore public confidence in the FBI. Furthermore, this unprecedented firing underscores the need for an independent nonpartisan investigation into potential collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia's interference in the election."
