Statement by Congressman Dan Kildee on FBI Investigation into Possible Collusion Between Trump Campaign and Russian Officials

March 20, 2017

Congressman Dan Kildee (MI-05) issued the following statement today after FBI Director James Comey publicly confirmed a federal investigation into the possible coordination between the Trump campaign and Russian officials during the 2016 election:

“Lots of unanswered questions remain concerning the Trump campaign’s contacts with Russian officials. The possible coordination between the Trump campaign and Russian officials during our election is a very serious matter. The FBI’s federal investigation must be fair, impartial and only led by the facts – wherever they may lead. Congress must also call a bipartisan, independent and outside commission to fully investigate all of President Trump’s personal, financial and business ties to Russia.

“The President, White House staff and Trump campaign officials must fully cooperate with any investigation and not try to interfere or meddle with them in any way. The American people deserve nothing less than the truth.”
