DNC Chair Tom Perez Statement on Comey Hearing

WASHINGTON – DNC Chair Tom Perez released the following statement after fired FBI director James Comey testified before the Senate Intelligence Committee:

“Comey’s testimony just gave us the clearest and most damning evidence yet that President Trump lied to the American people and is likely under investigation for obstruction of justice – a serious and disturbing charge. While Trump continues to attempt to protect himself and his friends, today’s testimony shows that he doesn’t care about the attacks on our democracy and on the American people. This behavior should alarm every member of Congress and every American citizen. Justice must be blind. Democrats and Republicans alike must stand together to see that it is served.”
