Congressman Russell Statement on FBI Director James Comey

May 10, 2017
Press Release

Congressman Steve Russell (OK-5) issued the following statement on the firing of FBI Director James Comey:

“Director Comey has provided this nation a lifetime of dedicated service. The fact that he has angered all sides of the political spectrum speaks to his independent nature as a law enforcer. All things considered, he serves at the pleasure of the president who has the burden and responsibility to restore trust amidst counterproductive volatility. Even so, I think history will judge him kindly.”
