Costa Responds to Reports of Comey Memo

Costa Responds to Reports of Comey Memo

WASHINGTON, DC – Today, Rep. Jim Costa (CA-16) released the following statement about the reports that President Donald Trump asked former FBI Director James Comey to end an FBI investigation of Michael Flynn:

“The reports that the President asked former FBI Director James Comey to stop the bureau’s investigation of Michael Flynn are deeply disturbing. If true, it would appear the President has abused his executive power and his actions could possibly lead to the obstruction of justice.

“Even before these reports, the President’s very real statements, actions, and tweets have cast a dark shadow of suspicion on FBI investigations related to Russia.

“As I have been saying for months, an independent commission should be named to investigate and determine the extent Russia influenced our election process. We need a full investigation of Russia’s involvement in our elections, and there can be no doubt regarding the integrity of the investigation. Americans cannot stand for anything less.”
