Some of Arizona’s leaders reacted quickly to the news that President Donald Trump informed FBI Director James Comey that he had been terminated and removed from office.
Sen. John McCain was quickest to pounce on Trump’s decision to fire Comey on the clear recommendations of both Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and Attorney General Jeff Sessions. Sen. Jeff Flake was confused. Republican House members were silent. Congressmen Ruben Gallego and Raul Grijalva went on the attack.

I’ve spent the last several hours trying to find an acceptable rationale for the timing of Comey’s firing. I just can’t do it.

Comey’s sudden dismissal looks an awful lot like a cover-up. How long will Congressional Republicans let him get away with these moves?

It’s painfully obvious: Congress must establish an independent investigation into Russian interference in US elections.
