Washington, D.C. – Congresswoman Julia Brownley (D-Westlake Village) released the following statement after President Trump announced the firing of FBI Director James Comey:

“The timing of President Trump’s firing of Director Comey is highly unusual and its implication is deeply disturbing. My Republican colleagues must put country first and work with Democrats to make sure the impartiality of the FBI is restored and the investigation of Russian interference in our political process is carried out without further obstruction or delay. We need a special prosecutor to take over the investigation, and we need one now. The very foundation of our democracy is at stake.”
