Rep. Schneider Statement on Firing of FBI Director James Comey

May 10, 2017
Press Release

Congressman Brad Schneider (IL-10) released the following statement:

“President Trump’s abrupt decision to fire FBI Director James Comey amid an ongoing investigation into the President’s campaign is deeply troubling and raises many questions about both the prospect for a credible investigation and the future independence of the FBI. The sudden dismissal and the inadequate reasoning offered by the Administration reeks of politically-motivated interference.

“The American people deserve the truth about Russia’s meddling in our election. The only way to preserve the public’s confidence after this executive abuse is a fully independent investigation free from political interference.”
