Coffman Statement on FBI Director Firing

May 10, 2017
Press Release

Aurora, CO – U.S. Representative Mike Coffman (R-CO) offered the following statement regarding the firing of FBI Director, James Comey:

“The decision by the President to fire FBI Director, James Comey Jr. was quite a surprise to me.  I have long felt that Director Comey’s handling of the Clinton email investigation was inappropriate and that he was no longer fit to serve as the Director of the FBI. The timing of the President’s decision, however, does concern me. I think it may create the appearance that Comey was fired due to his role in the investigation of possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia. I hope the President appoints a new Director whose stature is such that it restores American people’s confidence in the independence and integrity of the FBI.”
