Watch Live: James Comey Testifies Before The Senate Intelligence Committee
Former FBI Director James Comey testifies before the Senate Intelligence Committee about the FBI’s investigation into possible collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign.
Former FBI Director James Comey testifies before the Senate Intelligence Committee on Thursday about his conversations with President Donald Trump and the FBI’s investigation of possible Trump campaign connections to Russia. The testimony begins at 7 a.m. PST.
Trump abruptly fired Comey last month in the midst of the agency’s investigation into whether Trump’s campaign had ties to Russia’s meddling in the election. Comey’s testimony is expected to also touch on allegations that Trump, in private conversations with the former FBI director, tried to get the FBI to back off of its investigation into former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn and campaign ties to Russia, as The New York Times first reported.
