CRIST STATEMENT ON COMEY NOTES REVEALING TRUMP URGED END TO FBI INVESTIGATION INTO MICHAEL FLYNN
Congressman Charlie Crist (D-St. Petersburg) released the following statement on news reports that former FBI Director James Comey's notes reveal President Trump pressured him to end the FBI's investigation into former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn:
"If accurate, the President was attempting to impede an FBI investigation with national security implications. It's just wrong, plain and simple. The President is not above the law, but frighteningly it appears he thinks he is. If this isn't the final straw making clear the need for a special prosecutor, I don't know what is."
