Hoeven Statement on Dismissal of FBI Director James Comey

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Senator John Hoeven released the following statement on the dismissal of Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Director James Comey:

“While Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein’s letter made the case for the president to fire Director Comey, the timing of his dismissal raises questions. That’s why the bipartisan Senate Intelligence Committee needs to continue its investigation into all aspects of the 2016 U.S. presidential election, including any Russian interference. We look forward to reviewing their bipartisan findings and recommendations to determine if additional actions are necessary.”
