Phil Weiser, candidate for Colorado Attorney General, reflects upon the testimony of James Comey, former Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Director, to the U.S. Senate on June 8, 2017.


What we heard from Jim Comey’s testimony is that our president, Donald Trump, ordered him to layoff from criminal investigation of one of his associates, Michael Flynn. When Comey didn’t do that, he was fired. This goes against the principles of the rule of law. In our country, this is a sacrosanct principle. Our constitution is built on it. Everyone needs to be treated equally, no matter how rich or powerful. If people don’t stand up, don’t criticize threats to the rule of law, we will not able to continue living in the constitutional democracy that our founders envisioned. I’m running for attorney general because I believe deeply in this principle. Please, as citizens we need your voice. We need your help. Please join us.
