Rep. Mike Thompson (CA-05)—former Member of the House Intelligence Committee—released the following statement:

“Director Comey’s testimony revealed a disturbing and repeated pattern on the part of the President. Those repeated requests that Dir. Comey drop the investigation into Michael Flynn raise serious red flags. I am glad that Special Prosecutor Mueller continues to investigate the possible obstruction of justice. We need to know the extent of the connections between the administration, the campaign, and Russia, and if the President has any conflicts of interest that could lead him to put Russia’s interests ahead of our families.”
