Clark Statement on Former FBI Director Comey's Senate Testimony

Washington, DC – Congresswoman Katherine Clark released the following statement regarding former FBI Director James Comey’s Senate testimony:

“Director Comey’s testimony just confirmed what Americans feared. Amid Russia’s attacks on our democracy, Trump recklessly put his personal needs above the needs of American families. It’s clear Trump deliberately stepped between the FBI and its investigation into Russia’s meddling in our elections and ties to Trump’s inner circle. Today’s revelations reinforce the need for an outside independent commission that Trump cannot intimidate or silence.”
