Rep. Lloyd Smucker explains his thoughts on Comey firing, health care and refugees
U.S. Rep. Lloyd Smucker said Wednesday that President Donald Trump’s administration should be more forthcoming about what led to the firing of FBI Director James Comey.
In a meeting with the Rotary Club of Lancaster, Smucker also said the letters to Comey that were made public were “inadequate” for the reasons they provided, and that Congress needs a “fresh start” in its investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election.
“It's certainly incumbent on Congress to be sure that the American public know what is happening in instances like this and that we uncover everything that can be uncovered,” Smucker told about 150 people during a Q&A with Rotary members and their guests.
The freshman congressman from West Lampeter Township said he did not know whether the investigation should continue through a congressional committee or with the appointment of a special prosecutor.
