STATEMENT FROM A.G. SCHNEIDERMAN ON FIRING OF FBI DIRECTOR JAMES COMEY

NEW YORK - Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman issued the following statement: 

"The president's actions today threaten both critical investigations now underway, and the integrity and independence of the FBI, which is a critical partner to my office and to law enforcement agencies across the country. It is now clear that we need a special prosecutor to investigate interference by the Russian government into our presidential election and any potential ties to the Trump campaign or campaign associates. We need our leaders in Washington to put partisanship aside and call on President Trump and Department of Justice to do the right thing. The American people deserve nothing less."
