Thompson Issues Statement on FBI Director Comey's Dismissal

May 12, 2017

Statement from U.S. Rep. Glenn ‘GT’ Thompson:

“Director Comey had made several juxtaposing comments throughout the course of the past year and I am surprised that he was not asked to step down sooner.

“The American public is losing faith in our institutions and it is incumbent upon the White House to nominate someone who will ensure the hard working men and women at the FBI have a strong leader who will put the rule of law before party and politics.

“The American public deserve no less, and I am looking forward to new leadership focused on renewing faith and confidence in the agency.”
