U.S. Rep. Martha McSally called the Trump administration's firing of FBI Director James Comey "deeply concerning."

In a statement released Wednesday, McSally, a Republican who represents parts of Pima and Cochise counties, called for the FBI's investigation into potential Russian tampering in the 2016 election to continue.

Here is the full statement:

"The timing of this decision to fire FBI Director James Comey is deeply concerning, especially in light of the ongoing Department of Justice's investigation into Comey's handling of the Clinton email scandal. That investigation--along with the FBI and House and Senate Intelligence Committee's probes into Russian meddling--must continue. While FBI Director James Comey has been situationally attacked by both sides of the political spectrum, it is important for our national security and institutional integrity that all these investigations are completed without political interference."
