Press Release

Lancaster, Pa. – U.S. Rep. Lloyd Smucker (PA-16) issued the following statement on the dismissal of FBI Director James Comey:

“The decision to dismiss Director Comey raises serious and legitimate questions about timing, intent, and the integrity of ongoing investigations. My constituents deserve answers and I hope to see a full explanation soon. Additionally, while I support current congressional investigations into Russia’s interference in the 2016 presidential election, I believe we need a fresh start. It’s time for Congress to fully examine all circumstances surrounding Russia’s involvement, and to look at ways to ensure a fair and straightforward investigation.”
