Matteson, IL-(ENEWSPF)- Congresswoman Robin Kelly released the following statement after President Trump fired FBI Director James Comey:

“To date, President Trump has fired the FBI Director, the acting Attorney General and nearly 50 federal prosecutors. It seems anyone investigating President Trump’s ties to Putin or Russia’s effort to hack our election hears President Trump’s favorite phrase: ‘you’re fired.’

It’s time to appoint an non-partisan independent special counsel to investigate this Administration’s Russia conflicts.  The President owes it to the nation to be truthful and transparent.  We cannot afford anymore diversions or double speak. Let’s hold the President accountable for his actions and that starts with him owning up to someone he can’t fire.”
