Foster Statement on Comey Testimony
Washington, D.C. - Former Director Comey’s testimony today is the first step in the right direction to uncover the facts. The President’s request for loyalty is disconcerting. The Federal Bureau of Investigation must remain independent of politics and free from outside influence. Any indications of obstruction of justice must be aggressively investigated.
It’s also clear we need a truly independent outside investigation, conducted by a commission or independent prosecutor, along with vigorous Congressional investigations to get to the bottom of Russian influence in our recent election. The President of the United States must never be comprised and must operate with full accountability and transparency in the interests of the United States.
