APPLEGATE STATEMENT ON COMEY TESTIMONY

San Clemente, CA -- Earlier today, former FBI director James B. Comey provided testimony before the United States Senate Intelligence Committee on private conversations he had with President Donald J. Trump, and subsequent memos he drafted, which were eventually leaked to the media. In reaction to Comey's testimony, congressional candidate Doug Applegate issued the following statement:

"I joined the Marines Corp in 1974 at the height of the Cold War and served as a warrior in that fight. Through his testimony today, James Comey confirmed to the Senate Intelligence Committee that Russia is, in fact, coming after America. Trump and the GOP Congress know we're is under attack, but have done nothing to protect our most sacred right, our right to vote.

The sacrifices made by each generation, from the American Revolution to the present, stand to be thrown away if we stay the present course. Every true American patriot must join the fight to stop this treason of our democracy.”
