Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi,, the earliest high profile endorser of Donald Trump, said the president did the right thing firing FBI Director James Comey, regardless of whether he was in the midst of overseeing an investigation into the Trump administration's dealings with Russia.

"I think it was justified. He has every legal right to do so. Democrats were complaining about him, Republicans were complaining about him. That job should not be a political job. We should not be hearing very publicly from the leader of the FBI," said Bondi, who also called former FBI Director Robert Mueller a good choice for special counsel looking at the Russia matter.
