June 8, 2017
Press Release

WASHINGTON, DC–  Today, Congressman Brendan F. Boyle (PA-13), a member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, released the following statement regarding former FBI Director James Comey’s testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee:
“In his testimony, former FBI Director Jim Comey stated that President Trump asked on numerous occasions for his ‘loyalty’ and to ‘let go’ of the investigation into the President’s good friend and close advisor, Michael Flynn. When Comey refused, he was fired by President Trump. There is no other conclusion to draw other than that the President of the United States was attempting to obstruct an ongoing investigation: the definition of obstruction of justice.”
