"Murkowski, Sullivan, Tillerson Head To Fairbanks For Arctic Council"

"WASHINGTON — Alaska U.S. Sens. Lisa Murkowski and Dan Sullivan hitched a ride to Fairbanks Wednesday with Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, and the three headed to an Arctic ministerial conference there.

Representatives of Murkowski and Sullivan said Tuesday that the senators joined Tillerson on his State Department flight out of Andrews Air Force Base to Fairbanks for the Arctic conference.

The three are leaving Washington, D.C., after a morning of State Department and White House meetings with Russian officials, in the wake of President Donald Trump's decision to fire FBI Director James Comey. The FBI is pursuing an investigation into potential connections between the Trump campaign and Russia."
