“Unfortunately, Director Comey had become a lightning rod of controversy when his role needs to be one of unquestioned pursuit of the truth.”

WASHINGTON, District of Columbia-  Rep. Vicky Hartzler (R-Harrisonville) issued the following statement regarding the firing of FBI Director James Comey:

“Unfortunately, Director Comey had become a lightning rod of controversy when his role needs to be one of unquestioned pursuit of the truth.

While his sudden dismissal was unexpected, I believe a timely replacement will enable serious, important investigations to proceed so the results are unquestioned in the minds of Americans. I am hopeful a trusted replacement can be made as expeditiously as possible and the Department can move forward with a renewed focus to seek the truth and ensure justice prevails unhindered by controversy.
