Statement from Lindsey Davis Stover, Candidate for Congress in VA-10, on the Firing of FBI Director James Comey

McLean, VA – Lindsey Davis Stover, Candidate for Congress in Virginia’s 10th District, issued the following statement today on the firing of FBI Director James Comey.

“Since day one, Donald Trump has mounted a multi-front assault on the checks and balances of our government that separate us from an authoritarian regime: a free press, an independent judiciary and now rule of law is under attack with the firing of the FBI director in the middle of an investigation into the Russian attack on our democracy.

“We must stand up and fight back to defend our democracy and discover the truth. Congress must demand an independent commission and special prosecutor to protect the rule of law and fully investigate any and all Trump ties to Russia.”
