Congressman Jodey Arrington Weighs in on Comey, Cornyn

ABILENE, Texas (KTAB) - The firing of FBI Director James Comey leaves a vacant position at the top of the Federal Government, one that a US Senator from Texas is now a candidate for. 

Senator John Cornyn, who was in Abilene just last month.

Today, another US Government Official, Congressman Jodey Arrington stopped in the Key City.

He weighs in on the decision.

"I think one of the things I can say is from the outside is, it's the president's prerogative to hire and fire his leadership team," stated Congressman Jodey Arrington. "Now, I think the timing is just unfortunate because of all of the Russia investigations."

KTAB Political Contributor Retired Dyess Colonel Michael Bob Starr questioned Congressman Arrington about whether a special prosecutor should be appointed to handle the investigation. 

"You have so many on going investigations right now and I think there is a lot of interest in play here including the national media in my opinion," added Congressman Arrington. "There is, if you haven't noticed, not the warmest of relationships between the president and the media."

Congressman Arrington also talked about US Senator John Cornyn being named on a list to replace former FBI Director James Comey. 

He says he is not surprised but would like Senator Cornyn to stay where he is. 

"I want more Texas values and ideals brought to bear on our policy making, " Congressman Arrington said. 

President Trump has not said when he will replace Comey but a White House source says things are moving quickly.
