“President Trump’s Firing of FBI Director Comey Pushes U.S. Ever Closer to a Constitutional Crisis Tuesday, May 9, 2017
Washington (May 9, 2017) – Senator Edward J. Markey (D-Mass.) released the following statement on the firing of Federal Bureau of Investigation Director James Comey by President Donald Trump.
“President Trump’s firing of Director Comey sets a deeply alarming precedent as multiple investigations into possible Trump campaign or administration collusion with Russia remain ongoing, including an FBI investigation.
This episode is disturbingly reminiscent of the Saturday Night Massacre during the Watergate scandal and the national turmoil that it caused.
We are careening ever closer to a Constitutional crisis, and this development only underscores why we must appoint a special prosecutor to fully investigate any dealings the Trump campaign or administration had with Russia.” https://www.markey.senate.gov/news/press-releases/president-trumps-firing-of-fbi-director-comey-pushes-us-ever-closer-to-a-constitutional-crisis
