Washington( CNN) President Donald Trump’s sudden decision Tuesday to fire FBI Director James Comeyhas forced GOP lawmakers to decide whether to side with the White House on a move that comes in the middle of the FBI’s investigation into Russia’s meddling in the 2016 presidential election.
Here’s how Republican lawmakers have reacted:
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell: “Our Democratic colleagues( are) complaints about the removal of an FBI director whom they themselves repeatedly and sharply criticized . … Partisan calls should not delay the considerable work of Chairman( Richard) Burr and Vice Chairman( Mark) Warner. Too much is at stake.”
