Comey to Testify Before Senate Judiciary Committee

The Senate Judiciary Committee announced on Wednesday that FBI Director James Comey will testify during a hearing on May 3. The hearing was reportedly announced for FBI oversight purposes and is not necessarily related to ongoing congressional investigations into alleged Russian involvement in the 2016 presidential election. During a March hearing before the House Intelligence Committee, Comey publicly acknowledged that there was an open investigation into possible collusion between Russia and President Donald Trump’s campaign. The judiciary committee’s Subcommittee on Crime and Terrorism announced this week that former acting attorney general Sally Yates and former director of national intelligence James Clapper would be testifying at a May 8 hearing.
