FBI Director James Comey will appear before the Senate Judiciary Committee today, where he is expected to face questions about FBI oversight, as well as his investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential campaign.
The last time Comey testified in a Capitol Hill hearing, he created a political firestorm by confirming that there were investigations into whether Donald Trump‘s presidential campaign coordinated with Russian attempts to swing the 2016 election. It is possible that Comey will testify in defense of his judgment today, on both the Trump-Russia investigation, and also about how he handled his investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails during the election.
It is unclear whether Comey will present any new evidence about the Russia investigation today, though he might face questions about how multiple Trump officials have been linked to figures from Moscow since the president took office.
The hearing will begin at 10:00 a.m. EST.
