Foster Statement on Firing of FBI Director Comey

May 10, 2017
Press Release

Washington D.C. - The sudden dismissal of James Comey is deeply disturbing. Our democracy only functions as the Founding Fathers envisioned when its leaders, including the President of the United States, operate with full accountability and transparency in the interests of the United States and her citizens. Public confidence in our democracy demands the immediate appointment of an independent prosecutor.
