June 08, 2017

(Washington, DC)—Senator Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH) issued the following statement after former FBI Director James Comey testified before the Senate Intelligence Committee:

“I found former FBI Director Comey’s testimony regarding President Trump's actions and behavior very troubling,” said Shaheen. “Among my many concerns is the disturbing claim that President Trump did not express any interest or urgency into getting the facts on Russia’s interference in our elections. I’m very relieved that we now have an independent special counsel, in addition to probes in the House and the Senate, investigating these matters. We owe it to the American people to get to the bottom of this.”
