Press Release

Washington, DC – Congresswoman Nita M. Lowey (D-Rockland/Westchester), Ranking Member of the House Appropriations Committee, today released the following statement on Former FBI Director James Comey’s testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee:

“James Comey’s sworn testimony today reveals President Trump’s desperate and increasingly unhinged attempts to obstruct an ongoing FBI criminal investigation into whether his campaign colluded with Vladimir Putin’s Russia. With the integrity of our democracy at stake, I urge Congressional Republicans to put partisan politics aside and immediately establish a bipartisan, independent commission to complement the investigation of Special Counsel Robert Mueller. We must ensure the American people get the facts.”
