Bernie Sanders Sets The Stage For A Massive Democratic Resistance Against Trump’s FBI Nominee

In his statement on the firing of James Comey, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) made the argument no Trump picked FBI Director can be trusted to objectively carry out the Russia Investigation.

In a statement provided to PoltiicusUSA, Sen. Sanders said:

Donald Trump’s decision to fire FBI Director James Comey raises serious questions about what his administration is hiding. Why did President Trump fire the person leading the investigation into possible collusion between his campaign and the Russian government? I find it deeply troubling that this decision comes a day after damning testimony by former acting Attorney General Sally Yates on Russia’s ties to the Trump campaign and just days before Comey was scheduled to appear before the Senate Intelligence Committee.

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.

Expect Senate Democrats and maybe even some moderate Senate Republicans to use this same argument against any Trump nominated FBI Director. In fact, it may take an independent Russia investigation even to get Trump’s FBI Director confirmed. It will be interesting to see how many Republicans are willing to walk the plank for a president who looks like he is engaging in obstruction of justice.

If Republicans thought the fight over Gorsuch was difficult, that was nothing compared to what could be waiting for them on Trump’s nominee to run the FBI.
