Congresswoman Suzan DelBene (WA-01) today issued the following statement after President Trump fired the Director of the FBI, who was actively investigating the Trump campaign’s possible ties to Russia:

“The American people deserve to know the full extent of Russia’s grip on the Trump administration,” DelBene said. “Firing the head of the department investigating this severe threat to our democracy only creates more chaos, confusion and questions. The lack of transparency, and frankly now blatant interference from this President, easily merit an independent investigation. This is not about Democrats and Republicans, this is about the fabric of our democracy and how America conducts itself on the world stage.”
