The letter notes that there is public evidence suggesting President Trump fired Comey because of his investigation into possible collusion between the president's advisors and Russian officials. And it says that there's significant public evidence that senior Justice Department officials, including the Attorney General and the Deputy Attorney General, played a role in that decision.
