Former FBI Director James Comey gave testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee on Thursday for nearly three hours. Comey was grilled on private conversations he had with President Trump, details of the investigation into Russia's meddling with U.S. politics, and his handling of the investigation into Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server for classified information.
The controversy involving the President and the FBI director was compounded after Trump fired Comey last month.
Christian author and professor O. Alan Noble tweeted that he is concerned for his own political party because of this controversy:
^but im not concerned with the hypocrisy of the left. I'm concerned with the hypocrisy of the right--my political leaning, the ones in power— O. Alan Noble (@TheAlanNoble) June 9, 2017
Christian author and speaker Eric Metaxas retweeted former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee's statement:

Christian Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL), who was one of those questioning Comey, tweeted:
In any investigation, best way to focus on & find out more about what DID happen, is to identify & not waste time on what DIDN'T happen— Marco Rubio (@marcorubio) June 9, 2017
After President Trump fired Comey last month, Christian leaders mostly supported the President's decision.
