James Comey: Watch Live Stream of Senate Intelligence Committee Hearing

Former FBI Director James Comey is set to go before the Senate Intelligence Committee on Thursday morning, where he will offer his first public testimony since he was fired by President Donald Trump on May 9.

During the proceedings (expected to begin at promptly 10 am), Comey will be pressed on whether Trump put pressure on him to drop the investigation into former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn, which could be construed as obstruction of justice. As you’ll recall, Flynn was forced to resign just 24 days into the Trump administration over supposed communications with Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak. In March, he filed with the Justice Department as a foreign agent for lobbying work linked to the Turkish government.

Comey is not expected to explicitly accuse Trump of obstruction, or comment on what he may or may not believe to have been the president’s intent. Inquiries are expected to touch upon whether Comey believes he was let go as a means to sidetrack the Bureau’s probe into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.

Ahead of the hearing, Comey released his prepared opening remarks, which you can read here.

Cable news networks will have wall-to-wall coverage of Comey’s testimony, with most, if not all, of the broadcast networks breaking into regularly scheduled programming.

    Interesting watching this. Seriously though McCain is wacky – does he comprehend that this is in regards to Russia and Trump yet he wants to bring up Clinton. He must have forgotten his meds today. Proof we need young blood and these old coots should be gone.

    With the James Comey hearing that run nearly three hours, CBS is airing a rerun of TPIR in the West Coast as of today and it looks like that a new episode (6/8/2017) is going to be pushed back. This is only the second time this year that has happened because of political reasons (first was January 11, 2017).

    So vindication for Trump. Looks like Lynch could be in trouble, as expected. Of course he did say Trump lied but no obstruction of justice. and he was not under investigation for Russia.
    Overall good day for Trump but not a great day for him or America

      Not total vindication. I believe his word is wasn’t my call to say if it was obstruction of justice, but yes Trump actually told the truth for once and said he personally wasn’t under investigation. I doubt this affects Lynch at all because she chose the word matter instead of investigation. Correct on saying not a good day for him or America.

    All I saw was how much the former FBI Director, M. James Corney was vindicative (sorry but to have leaked information by friends & relative to the press is an act unworthy of a fromer FBI Director and he would deserved to be ‎be prosecuted for it!) towards Pdt Donald Trump for his firing. I can understand how deeply humiated he felt but I understood too that the dismissal of a FBI Director was part of the prerogatives of a President of the United States, no matter the reasons and be sure of one thing, he would have been fired by Mrs Clinton too, if she had come to power, ‎under one pretext or another (although we would have all understood that the reason was Corney’s controversial behavior towards her in last months of the Presidential campaign).
    And I bet that in response,M. Corney would have acted in the same loose attitude, in leaking some juicy informations about Pdt Clinton, on her emails or on the Clintons Foundation or wahatever.

    Anyway, the situation would be the same as today as seeing as M. Corney admitted that Pdt Trump made no CLEAR obstruction of justice and that he wasn’t under investigation for Russia. the ball is at the center of the court again and the destition of Pdt Trump is NOT for today or ‎the coming months. That being said, this doesn’t mean that Pdt Trump is out of danger zone in coming years…
