Congresswoman Bustos Statement on President Trump’s Alleged Interference in FBI Investigation

WASHINGTON – Today, Congresswoman Cheri Bustos (IL-17) issued the following statement after a report that President Trump interfered in the FBI’s investigation into former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn:

“Tonight’s report that Donald Trump interfered in an FBI investigation is just the latest in a string of disturbing accusations of the President abusing his power. There cannot be one set of rules for President Trump and another for everyday Americans. We need an independent investigation with a special prosecutor to get to the bottom of President Trump’s ties to Vladimir Putin, any attempt to cover up possible collusion with the Kremlin and these new allegations of obstruction of justice.”
