Former FBI Director Comey Has Validated the Facts Needed to Impeach President Trump

Washington, D.C. -- Congressman Al Green (TX-9) released a statement concerning former FBI Director Mr. James B. Comey’s hearing as it validates Rep. Green’s previous statements:

“Mr. Comey mentioned several times that he believed he was fired due to the ‘Russia Investigation’. Mr. Comey’s remarks during his testimony confirmed the facts that I have stated for almost a month now.

Once again the facts remain simple and indisputable. The President fired the FBI Director because the Director was investigating the President’s campaign connections to Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election. This is obstruction of justice.

“This will continue to be obstruction of justice. Mr. Comey’s testimony has validated why his firing is an indisputable fact. This will remain obstruction of justice regardless of the findings of any investigation.

At the end of the day, all the American people have is the word of the President. Mr. Comey stated that he took notes after meeting with the President because he was afraid President Donald J. Trump would lie. I still stand as strong today, as I did on the floor of the United States House of Representatives on May 17, 2017. The President has obstructed justice and the President should be impeached.”
