Dallas, TX – Today, Congresswoman Eddie Bernice Johnson released the following statement after President Trump fired FBI Director James Comey:

“I am deeply concerned by FBI Director James Comey’s abrupt firing by President Trump. I can’t help but think the timing of this questionable decision coincides with the FBI’s full engagement in pursuing an investigation into the Russian interference of the 2016 Presidential election. I call on President Trump to explain his decision to the American people as well as provide a full accounting and justification for this decision.”
