The dust still hasn't settled with Democrats referencing Watergate and many Republicans throwing their support behind president Trump's decision. So far, congressional reaction has ranged from that support to calls for a special prosecutor or an independent investigation.

The New York Times has been keeping track of every single reaction and the following infographic provides an overview of where lawmakers stand on the Comey situation. Few Republicans have joined the Democratic chorus calling for action, though some have criticized the president's move in terms of its timing. Some key Republicans, including John McCain and Justin Amash, have gone a step further and called for an independent commission to probe alleged Russian interference in the presidential election.

This chart shows lawmakers' reaction in the aftermath of Comey's firing.
