Press Release

Washington, DC – Congressman Mark DeSaulnier (CA-11), a member of the Oversight and Government Reform Committee, issued the following statement on former FBI Director James Comey's written testimony for the Senate Intelligence Committee hearing scheduled for tomorrow.

“Every American citizen should read former FBI Director James Comey’s testimony. Throughout his life, Trump has never believed boundaries apply to him. Would an innocent person call the Director of the FBI six times and initiate three private, in-person meetings over the course of four months? Conversely, President Obama never spoke to the FBI Director on the phone and met with him alone, in-person twice in eight years. At tomorrow’s hearing, I call on my Republican colleagues to put country before party and to help Congress get to the bottom of what happened during the 2016 Presidential Campaign. History will hold accountable those who are silent,” said Congressman DeSaulnier.
