The next step for Ms. Comstock
Regarding the May 11 Metro article “Area GOP lawmakers divided on Comey exit”:
President Trump’s firing of FBI Director James B. Comey just days after Mr. Comey indicated he wanted to expand the investigation of Russian interference and possible Trump 2016 campaign collusion was a stunning move. Even Rep. Barbara Comstock (R-Va.) is calling for an independent Trump-Russia investigation. The citizens of our country, and no less the citizens of her district, deserve to know the truth.
But Ms. Comstock needs to do more than just placate her constituents with a public statement. Ms. Comstock should co-sponsor the Protecting Our Democracy Act, H.R. 356, which would establish an independent bipartisan commission to investigate Russian interference in our elections. She should also introduce or co-sponsor legislation to install a special prosecutor to investigate any ties between Russia and the Trump campaign.
