Upton Would Support Appointing A Special Prosecutor “At The Right Time”

Congressman Fred Upton says he would support the appointment of a special prosecutor to investigate President Donald Trump’s ties to Russia “at the appropriate time.” That’s after Trump fired FBI Director James Comey Tuesday. Comey had been conducting the investigation into possible Russian meddling in the presidential election. Congressman Upton issued a statement Wednesday morning telling us he’s “always advocated for an independent and non-political FBI” that seeks just the facts. Upton goes on to say he is not “privy to the justification nor the details behind the firing but the replacement must restore the public confidence immediately.” He says Comey’s replacement cannot be a partisan selection.
