(WUSA9) -- U.S. Senator Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) released a statement on Wednesday about the investigation involving his chief of staff.

The statement, which can be found on the senator's website, reads:

"I was just informed by the United States Senate legal counsel's office that law enforcement agents are conducting a search of the personal residence of Ryan Loskarn, the chief of staff of my Washington, D.C., office regarding allegations involving child pornography. I am stunned, surprised and disappointed by what I have learned. Based on this information, I immediately placed Mr. Loskarn on administrative leave without pay. The office is fully cooperating with the investigation."
