In a highly anticipated hearing on Capitol Hill, two high-ranking officials will testify before the House Intelligence Committee on March 20.
FBI Director James “Jim” Comey and National Security Agency Director and Adm. Mike Rogers are testifying in front of the group about the involvement of Russia during the 2016 presidential election.
The hearing begins at 10 a.m. EST and is expected to last about three hours. To watch the hearing live, press play on the live stream above.
The open hearing is specifically in regard to the FBI’s investigation into Russian active measures during the November 2016 election.
Comey and Rogers testifying in front of the House committee comes after President Donald Trump‘s former national security adviser, Michael Flynn, was paid almost $70,000 by companies from Russia before the election. Flynn stepped down from his position February 14, after the controversy came to light.
In addition, Comey will be questioned after Trump claimed on Twitter that former President Barack Obama wiretapped his phones at Trump Tower during the election. According to a Politico, members of Congress are expected to ask Comey many questions about the claim in an attempt to clear the air.
However, the Senate Intelligence Committee said there was “no indications of surveillance” at Trump Tower.
