Press Release

Washington, DC – Congressman Mark DeSaulnier (CA-11) issued the following statement on former FBI Director James Comey's testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee.

“Under oath and with America watching, Director Comey was delivered an  honest, credible, and rational explanation of the unprecedented nine private interactions he had with President Trump. He built a strong case for possible collusion, and clearly exposed that the President lied about the motives behind his firing. He also confirmed that Russia launched a ‘massive effort’ to interfere with the United States election and advised ‘they’ll be back.’ We are at a critical point in history in which Congress has a moral authority to thoroughly investigate and get to the truth to both protect the American people and our Constitution,” said Congressman DeSaulnier.
