[ screaming ] >> reporter: demonstrators protested outside the white house following president trump's firing of fbi director james comey. >> he wasn't doing a good job, very simply. >> reporter: the white house said it was deputy attorney general rod rosenstein's recommendation to fire comey because of how he handled the investigation into hillary clinton's private email server. but now they say it was a long time coming. >> he had lost confidence in director comey and frankly he had been considering letting director comey go since the day
he was elected. >> reporter: but democrats say the president had ulterior motives for firing him. >> he was likely fired because he was getting closer to the truth about the connection between the trump campaign and russia. >> reporter: sources tell cbs news comey had approached deputy attorney general rod rosenstein last week to ask for more energy, resources and attention for the russia investigation. it's a claim the department of justice denies. democrats now say the fbi investigation needs to be taken out of the department of justice. >> we need a special prosecutor to pick up the criminal investigation and we need to pursue to the very end the investigation in the senate intelligence committee. >> reporter: the north carolina senator says he will continue to lead the senate investigation but says director comey's firing makes it harder. >> i think that the timing and the reasoning, um, incites people to believe that there's something that's been covered up. >> reporter: comey has been invited to appear before the
senate intelligence committee next week. and the senate intelligence committee has indicated their investigation will move forward into alleged russian collusion issuing their first subpoena for documents from former national security adviser michael flynn. it's unclear if comey will testify. if it happens it will probably happen behind closed doors. >> seth, who is going to take over that department? have we heard any names mentioned for a replacement fbi director? >> reporter: we heard several names top level officials in the fbi. the deputy attorney general and the attorney general have been interviewing more than a handful of candidates including the acting director of the fbi right now and andrew mccabe. >> thank you. jeff harp used to be the number 2 in the san francisco fbi office. he says comey's firing was a big surprise to many fbi agents. >> the mood among the
organization right now probably isn't the greatest. but, you know, there's always hope. you know, i went through i think three different directors and, um, not one time did morale ever fade so much that the mission was lost. >> he says agents think the next director will probably be somebody outside of the fbi. cbs news reporter elizabeth palmer caught up with russian president vladimir putin before a hockey game in russia today. asked him about james comey. >> sir, how will the firing of james comey affect u.s.-russia relations? >> there will be no effect. your question look very funfully to me. we have nothing to do with that. president trump is acting in accordance with his competence and in accordance with the law and constitution. >> and you can see more of that interview with vladimir putin coming up on the "cbs evening news with scott pelley"at 5:30.

within the same hour a white suv two miles away in lafayette was set on fire. it happened on padre street. today police were in both neighborhoods checking to see if homes had surveillance cameras recording at the time of the fires. >> this is just recent in the last few years. it's gotten worse. >> reporter: paul lived in this walnut creek neighborhood for more than 30 years and says he may get more security than he already has now. >> get a cam outside and we have a security system inside. we have a large guard dog. but now i'll put one outside also. >> reporter: a third car fire happened the night before in martinez. all the suspicious fires happened around the same time. and while cars have been torched and some destroyed, there have been no injuries. no one inside the home was injured last night. police are reviewing surveillance video in these neighborhoods. in walnut creek, juliette goodrich, kpix 5. thanks in part to a kpix 5 investigation, more than 600
