Issa Reacts to Comey Firing

Press Release
May 9, 2017

Congressman Darrell Issa released the following statement on the President's decision to fire FBI director James Comey. Congressman Darrell Issa was among the first of his house colleagues to call for an independent investigation into Russia.

“From Director Comey’s botched efforts to obtain a backdoor into American’s digital privacy, to his mishandling of one of the most politically sensitive investigations in a lifetime, Director Comey had lost my confidence long ago. Democrats and Republicans alike have called for his ouster, and new leadership at the FBI will restore confidence in the agency.  With much important work to be done, we now must immediately appoint a replacement who can have the trust of the American people to carry out the duties of the FBI independently, impartially, and free of political influence.” – Congressman Darrell Issa
