Adams Statement on the Dismissal of FBI Director James Comey

May 10, 2017
Press Release

Charlotte, N.C.—Congresswoman Alma Adams (NC-12) released the following statement after President Trump fired FBI Director James Comey in the midst of the investigation into Russia.

“This is a troubling sequence of events,” said Congresswoman Adams. “The timing of the White House’s dismissal of Director Comey, in the midst of the investigation into Russian meddling in our elections, is questionable. Actions such as this detract from the focus of this investigation and erode public trust in the process. It is now more important than ever that an independent special counsel is appointed to investigate Russian interference in our elections.”
