Press Release

Today, Congressman Tom O’Halleran (AZ-01) released a statement following the revelation that President Donald Trump asked FBI Director James Comey to end an ongoing investigation into Michael Flynn’s relationship with Russian officials:

“The American people deserve to be able to trust their President.  It is deeply troubling and would be a breach of that trust if the reports are accurate that President Trump tried to shut down an independent FBI investigation into his former national security advisor, Michael Flynn,” said Rep. O’Halleran. “The American people deserve to have a full accounting of the details behind these reports.”
