Murkowski Comments on Firing of FBI Director James Comey

U.S. Senator Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) released the following statement after President Trump announced he fired FBI Director James Comey:

“Whether or not you are a supporter of Mr. James Comey’s actions as FBI Director, the timing of his firing – in the middle of an investigation into Russia’s interference in our election – is serious cause for concern. The President cited that one of his reasons for firing Comey as FBI Director was that he had lost the public’s trust and was unable to carry out the duties needed for the job. It is now our job to restore that trust.”
