LIVE: James Comey To Testify In Senate Hearing On Russia

Jun 7, 2017

Ousted FBI Director James Comey will testify Thursday before the Senate intelligence committee as part of its ongoing investigation into Russia’s alleged interference in the 2016 elections.  

Comey’s testimony is scheduled to begin at 10 a.m.

Comey, who was fired May 9 by President Donald Trump, is expected to speak about how his agency assessed Russia’s role in November’s election. Trump drew criticism for removing Comey from his position while Comey was leading an active investigation into Russia’s role in the elections as well as possible ties to members of Trump’s campaign.
