In the wake of the news that President Donald Trump fired FBI Director James Comey, Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) called on the administration to allow a special prosecutor to take over the investigation of the administration that Comey was leading.

Harris, who sits on the Senate Intelligence Committee currently investigating the connections between Trump’s presidential campaign and the Russian government, said the shocking news underscores the importance of appointing a special prosecutor to ensure a fair and impartial investigation going forward.

Other Senate Democrats, including Sen. Jeff Merkley (D-OR), echoed this demand Tuesday night.
