Watch Live: The Senate Intelligence Committee Holds a Hearing on Russian Election Interference
The committee has requested that 20 individuals testify, the Associated Press reports, but only five are scheduled so far. Speaking to reporters on Wednesday, Sens. Richard Burr and Mark Warner, the chair and ranking member of the committee, respectively, emphasized their commitment to cooperation in the investigation.
“We’re partners to see that this is completed and that we have a product at the end of the day that we can, in bipartisanship, support,” Burr said.
The House Intelligence Committee is facing controversy after its Republican chairman, Rep. Devin Nunes, bypassed members to share with the White House and the media that the intelligence community incidentally collected information about U.S. citizens involved in the Trump transition team.
The Senate hearing is scheduled to begin at 10 a.m. E.T. You can watch it live above.
