The following is the statement of Democratic Party of Wisconsin Chair Martha Laning with regards to former FBI Director James Comey’s testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee today:
“Today’s testimony from former FBI director James Comey made it clear that the President lied in describing the reasons he fired Comey in May. Comey’s testimony also showed that the President attempted to influence the investigation into Russia’s meddling in the 2016 election.

Like many of you, I was shocked when the news broke last week that President Trump had fired his FBI Director, James Comey. Immediately I thought that it was an affront to Democracy for the President to fire the very person leading an investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election. As DNC Chair Tom Perez said after the news broke, we need to wake up and smell the cover up.
