New Mexico Senator questions former FBI director

Sen Heinrich questions Comey

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – New Mexico Senator Martin Heinrich was one of the senators who questioned former FBI Director James Comey Thursday.

“A lot of this comes down to who we should believe. Do you want to say anything as to why we should believe you?” Senator Heinrich asked.

Comey responded, “You can’t say I like these things he said but on this, he’s a dirty rotten liar. You’ve got to take it all together, and I’ve tried to be open and honest and fair and accurate.”

The senator further asked about President Trump’s interest in Russian hacking.

He also asked about reports that the president wanted to set up communications with Russia when he came into office.

New Mexico Senator Tom Udall also issued a response to Comey’s testimony, saying in part, “Comey’s testimony tells the American public they cannot trust their president and instead of keeping this investigation behind closed doors there must be an open forum to shine light on Russian interference in our election and possible collusion with the Trump campaign.”
