Esty Statement on Former FBI Director Comey’s Testimony

June 8, 2017
Press Release

Washington, D.C. – Congresswoman Elizabeth Esty (CT-5) today released the following statement regarding the testimony of former FBI Director James Comey before the Senate Intelligence Committee:

“Director Comey’s testimony confirmed many of the most troubling news reports about President Trump’s conduct, including that President Trump may have inappropriately interfered with an FBI investigation into a former member of his administration. Director Comey’s testimony that President Trump sought ‘loyalty’ from the FBI Director and may have expected preferential treatment in exchange for keeping him in his post is also profoundly disturbing. Congress and the Department of Justice must continue their dogged pursuit of the facts, wherever they may lead.”
