November 8, 2018
Press Release

(WASHINGTON, DC) Today, Rep. Grace F. Napolitano (D-El Monte) released the following statement on the firing of Attorney General Jeff Sessions:

“President Trump’s firing of Attorney General Jeff Sessions raises serious questions that demand answers and full accountability. Congress must act immediately to protect Special Counsel Robert Mueller and all documents relating to the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election. The investigation must continue unimpeded, and Acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker should have no bearing on it. The President did not fool anyone with this decision, or its timing, which is a clear attempt to undermine an ongoing criminal investigation. We have to find out what happened. Americans deserve to know the truth.”
