Rep. Val Demings Responds to Firing of FBI Director
WASHINGTON, D.C.—Congresswoman Val Demings, Florida’s 10th Congressional District, released the following statement regarding the abrupt firing of FBI Director James Comey:
"The circumstances surrounding the firing of FBI Director James Comey, from the timing, to the justification, to the individuals involved, are very concerning.
"We need to restore the American people's faith in the ability of the FBI to conduct a fair and non-partisan investigation. That starts with the investigation into the Russian interference of the 2016 election, and the Trump campaign's collusion with Russia.
"It's time for all of us to put partisanship aside, and do what's best for the future of our democracy."
