Atlanta, GA – Democratic Party of Georgia Chair DuBose Porter issued the following statement in response to the firing of FBI Director James Comey.
“Donald Trump’s authoritarian rule knows no bounds. First he fires Sally Yates and now Comey—the man responsible for investigating Trump’s ties to Russia. This is above politics, and there already exists a resounding bipartisan agreement on calls for an independent commission and the appointment of a special prosecutor. Our national security is as stake and these demands must be met immediately. We cannot trust Donald Trump to investigate himself. We just cannot trust Donald Trump.”
