Press Release

Washington, D.C. – Today, Congressman Diane Black (R-TN-06) released the following statement in support of President Donald Trump’s decision to terminate FBI Director James Comey after his conduct raised questions regarding the integrity of one of America’s most trusted institutions.

“President Trump made the right call firing former FBI Director Comey last month – especially after events from this past year put our national security at risk. The hypocrisy from the Democrats proves they will do anything to attack this Administration and undermine its decisions. Comey’s removal was the right move for the United States and I look forward to working with the new director to restore the American people’s trust in the FBI,” said Congressman Black.
