Last night, it was announced that the Trump administration had fired FBI Director James Comey. Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein stated that decision was made because Comey had "usurped" the attorney general's authority when he made the announcement that the FBI was not recommending any charges against Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton after reopening her email investigation back in July 2016.
But the decision concerned many, since Comey was overseeing investigations into Russian involvement in the 2016 election and possible links to the Trump campaign. One of those concerned is a Democratic senator from Connecticut, Richard Blumenthal. Blumenthal appeared on MSNBC and CNN on Wednesday morning to call for a special prosecutor to investigate any connections.
