***** COMEY Testifies - Senate Judiciary - LIVE May 3 2017 ***** [View all]

Expect a partisan hearing, Republicans wanting to cyber lynch President Obama to politicize #TrumpRussia and Dems wanting to know more about the #TrumpRussia investigation.

Also on C-SPAN https://www.c-span.org/video/?427708-1/fbi-director-james-comey-face-renewed-questioning-russia-probe

Also on PBS Newshour http://www.pbs.org/newshour/rundown/watch-live-fbi-director-comey-testify-senate-judiciary-committee/

Also on NY Times YouTube channel.

FBI Director James Comey will testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee in a hearing on FBI oversight on Wednesday, one day after both President Donald Trump and former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton criticized him.

The hearing before the Judiciary Committee, which is slated to start around 10 a.m., will not directly deal with the FBI's investigation of potential coordination between the Trump campaign and Russia, though senators plan to ask the FBI director about it, the Associated Press reports.
