RELEASE, 5/16/17 - Houlahan Calls on Costello to Demand Immediate Independent Russia Investigation


DEVON - Veteran, small business executive and educator Chrissy Houlahan issued the following statement calling on Representative Ryan Costello to demand an immediate independent investigation into Russia's influence in the 2016 election.

"I am very concerned over reports that President Trump shared highly classified information with Russian diplomats while meeting in the Oval Office the day after suddenly firing FBI Director James Comey," said Houlahan. "It is crystal clear that we need an immediate independent investigation into Russia’s influence in the 2016 election. Congress has a duty to act as a check on the Trump Administration. I am calling on our Representative Costello to step up to demand an independent investigation and stop being a rubber stamp for the Trump Administration."
