May 17, 2017
Press Release

WASHINGTONCongressman A. Donald McEachin (VA-04) issued the following statement on the appointment of a Special Counsel to investigate the connections between Russia and the Trump Administration:

"I'm pleased to see that the Justice Department has decided to appoint a special counsel. That is one small step toward the honest, transparent, thorough and expeditious investigation that the American people deserve. I would like to reiterate the importance of also having an independent commission. Most importantly, the work of the Special Counsel and the Commission must be thorough and include the precipitous firing of former FBI Director James Comey in the scope of the investigation. I hope my Republican colleagues are finally recognizing the gravity of the situation and the necessity to put principle over Party and partisanship.”
