Calls Grow For Democrats To Block Trump's FBI Director Until A Special Prosecutor Is Appointed

Calls Grow For Democrats To Block Trump's FBI Director Until A Special Prosecutor Is Appointed

The calls are getting louder in the aftermath of the firing of James Comey for Democrats to block Trump’s nominee to be the next FBI Director until a special prosecutor is appointed to investigate Trump and Russia.
Center for American Progress Senior Fellow Ken Gude said, “We need a special prosecutor, and we need one right now. Every step of the way, President Trump has tried to stifle or kill the Russia investigation. Any notion that Trump would fire FBI Director Comey over his handling of the Clinton email investigation is a red herring. No new FBI Director should be confirmed until a special prosecutor is appointed to lead a truly independent investigation into the Trump campaign’s ties to Russia.”

Sen. Bernie Sanders said that Trump nominated FBI Director won’t be able to carry out an independent investigation, “President Trump has repeatedly taken steps to kill inquiries into Russia’s involvement in the U.S. election. It is clear that whomever President Trump handpicks to lead the FBI will not be able to objectively carry out this investigation. We need an independent investigation into the Trump campaign’s ties to Russia.”
