Congressman Green Statement on the Firing of FBI Director James Comey

Press Release

HOUSTON, TX – Congressman Green (TX-29) released the following statement after President Trump terminated and removed FBI Director James Comey from office:

“The timing of Director Comey’s termination is questionable and I am deeply concerned with President Trump’s motive for firing Mr. Comey,” said Green. “Throughout the investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 elections and possible coordination with the Trump campaign, Mr. Comey demonstrated the professionalism that his position demanded. The American people deserve an answer from the President for his justification of Mr. Comey’s termination. Moving forward I think it is now more important than ever to appoint a special prosecutor to oversee the ongoing investigation as I and many of my colleagues on both sides of the aisle have called for."
