Bennet Statement on Director Comey’s Firing

Washington, D.C. - Colorado U.S. Senator Michael Bennet today issued the following statement after President Trump fired FBI Director James Comey:

"The timing of Director Comey's firing raises many questions. The next FBI director must be independent and relentless in seeking the truth.
