FBI Director James Comey will testify before the House Intelligence Committee on Monday morning about allegations of Russian interference in last year’s U.S. presidential election.
Comey is also expected to be asked about President Donald Trump’s unsubstantiated and widely dismissed claim that Trump Tower was wiretapped by former President Barack Obama last year. National Security Agency Director Michael Rogers will also testify.
Trump criticized the premise of the hearing in a series of tweets on Monday morning, calling accusations that his campaign colluded with Russia “fake news” and faulting Democrats. “The Democrats made up and pushed the Russian story as an excuse for running a terrible campaign. Big advantage in Electoral College & lost!” he said.
The hearing is scheduled to begin at 10 a.m. E.T. You can watch it live above.
