Comey Should Lead US Senate's Russia Probe - Intelligence Committee Member

Trump tweets: Soon all will be 'thanking me' for Comey firing
Both news outlets report that Trump grew especially angry while watching Comey's televised appearances before congressional panels, and his administration wanted the director to publicly swat down suggestions of ties to Russian Federation.
There are a great many outstanding questions about the circumstances of Director Comey's dismissal, the status of the executive branch investigation into the Trump campaigns ties to Russian Federation, and what the future holds for these investigations. Representative Adam Schiff of California, top Democrat on the House intelligence committee, said the White House was "brazenly interfering" in the probe. Meanwhile, Hillary Clinton blamed the director for contributing to her loss of the presidency. As to Trump's contention that the firing had to do with Comey's decision-making on such matters as the Clinton emails, he said, "Nobody believes that".
Sanders said she was not aware if Trump knew about Comey's reported request.
"The timing of this firing was very troubling", said Sen.
As the Democratic vice presidential nominee in 2016, few were in as close proximity to Russia's election meddling as Kaine.
"I have doubted the ability of Director Comey to lead the Federal Bureau of Investigation effectively for some time now but the timing of his dismissal is unfortunate", Toomey said.
The move sparked immediate accusations of political interference, with Republicans as well as Democrats expressing dismay.
U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Oshkosh, chairman of the Senate Homeland Security Committee, issued a one-sentence statement late Tuesday thanking Comey for his service. He added that it "further confuses an already hard investigation by the Committee".
Later, on Wednesday morning, Mr Trump looked to vindicate his decision to sack Mr Comey, by saying that "Comey lost the confidence of nearly everyone in Washington, Republican and Democrat alike".
Trump kept up his attack on Democrats over the Comey matter with another tweet Wednesday afternoon, calling them "phony hypocrites".
The president said he will hire someone "who will do a far better job" in restoring the FBI's prestige.
Mr Comey had also been leading the investigation into whether there were any links between Mr Trump's campaign team and Russian Federation. The administration paired the letter with a scathing review by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein of how Comey handled the investigation into Democrat Hillary Clinton's email practices, including his decision to hold a news conference announcing its findings and releasing "derogatory information" about Clinton.
The spokeswoman said that Sessions and Rosenstein came to Trump at a meeting on Monday with concerns about Comey.
Hayden added that Comey's handling of the Clinton email investigation has been well known since last summer and suspects Trump's motivation may have been something else. "It is now up to the president to appoint, and the Senate to confirm, a successor who has unimpeachable credentials and integrity and who enjoys the confidence of the American people". That left many blasting the firing as an abuse of power, even if as they did not quibble with the reasons the White House put forward as cause.
