“I think that Director Comey should testify in front of the committee. I think that it is a smart move and we want to hear what he  has to say,” Ernst said.

Ernst was also asked if she believed whether or not the Russia investigation was warranted.

“I think we should look into any allegations that are out there, and we have been doing this for a number of months now.
