WASHINGTON, DC —(ENEWSPF)–June 8, 2017.  U.S. Senator Tammy Duckworth (D-IL) issued the following statement regarding former FBI Director James Comey’s testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee this morning:

“Mr. Comey’s testimony about the President’s behavior should concern any American who respects the basic rule of law and our democratic institutions. Let’s be clear: the former FBI Director has now testified under oath that he believes the President lied and may be under investigation for obstructing an active investigation into Russia’s interference in our democracy. These accusations are not normal and they transcend petty partisanship. Special Counsel Mueller must now swiftly complete a transparent, impartial and independent investigation to ensure the American people learn the truth.”
