Washington - Rep. Mike Thompson (CA-05) released the following statement on the President's decision to remove Director James Comey from his position at the FBI:
"Throughout the 2016 election, Director Comey made numerous, conflicting choices about what information to reveal and what to withhold. His dismissal is not the end of this story. We can't let his firing distract us from this week's revelations by former Acting Attorney General Sally Yates. Russia interfered in our elections. That's a fact, and it cannot be forgotten or pushed aside. We need a special prosecutor to learn just how deep this rabbit hole goes and take action before they try these tactics again."
