3/20/2017 FBI Director James Comey is due to testify before a House panel Monday morning on wire tapping/Russian connection
“This could be high drama,” said Rep. Peter King (R-Seaford), a member of the House Intelligence Committee, which is holding the hearing. “I have no idea where this hearing is going to end up at the end of the day.”
Lawmakers said they want Comey to give a definitive answer to questions that have hung over Washington: Did the FBI wiretap Trump Tower, Trump or his associates last year as part of an investigation into Trump and the campaign’s ties to Russia? And did Obama have a role?
Committee members also will press Comey on whether the FBI has probed or discovered evidence that Trump’s campaign colluded with Russia or that the Obama administration illegally leaked surveillance transcripts for political purposes.
