May 10th, 2017
Moulton: “It’s no secret what’s going on here — just look at any autocratic regime across the world.”
Salem, MA – Today, Congressman Seth Moulton (D-MA) released the following statement in response to President Trump’s firing of FBI Director James Comey in the middle of the FBI’s counterintelligence investigation into President Trump’s ties to Russia.
“What happened last night should concern every American. Trump has now fired acting Attorney General Sally Yates, U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara, and FBI Director James Comey, all of whom were investigating Trump and his allies’ ties to Russia. It’s no secret what’s going on here–just look at any autocratic regime across the world.
“Americans deserve answers, and the only way to get those answers is with an independent, bipartisan commission to investigate Russia’s influence on our election, and a special prosecutor to bring any wrongdoers to justice.”
