REP. COSTELLO STATEMENT REGARDING REMOVAL OF FBI DIRECTOR

May 10, 2017
Press Release

Washington, D.C. -- Rep. Ryan Costello (PA-06) issued the following statement regarding the removal of Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Director James Comey:

“There has been ongoing bipartisan concern regarding the FBI Director for a variety of reasons. To date, the explanation for the firing has been insufficient and the timing raises additional questions. I have always maintained that any investigation into Russian efforts to interfere in the 2016 election must have the confidence of the American people. My constituents must have assurances that a non-partisan investigation will yield independent, well-grounded conclusions, and I certainly support that effort. At this time, I am continuing to gather more information.”
