Senator Toomey Issues Statement on Former FBI Director James Comey

May 10, 2017

Washington, D.C. - Senator Pat Toomey (R-Pa.) has issued the following comment regarding former FBI Director James Comey:

"I have doubted the ability of Director Comey to lead the FBI effectively for some time now but the timing of his dismissal is unfortunate. It is now up to the president to appoint, and the Senate to confirm, a successor who has unimpeachable credentials and integrity and who enjoys the confidence of the American people. The next FBI director should continue pursuing ongoing investigations, including the 2016 presidential campaign."
