Perez on Comey Firing

In response to the firing of FBI Director James Comey, DNC Chairman Tom Perez released this statement:

“Donald Trump’s firing of James Comey is a brazen and disgraceful abuse of power.  The fact that the leadership of the Justice Department was complicit in manufacturing this joke of a rationale for Comey’s dismissal at the request of Trump is further evidence that nobody in this Administration can be trusted to lead an honest investigation into a serious national security issue.  It is time for leaders in both parties to come together and call for the appointment of a special prosecutor at the Department of Justice and an independent commission to conduct the kind of investigation that the American people deserve.”
