WASHINGTON (WSAV) — Former FBI Director James Comey will testify before the Senate Intelligence Committee on June 8 for the first time since he was fired.
This comes in the midst of an ongoing investigation into a possible connection between Trump campaign officials and Russian interference of the 2016 election.
In the statement, Comey recounts several conversations with President Trump. This includes one conversation where Comey says the president requested a loyalty pledge from him.
Comey also confirms news reports that the president asked him to drop the investigation into Michael Flynn.
The hearing will preempt regular programming on WSAV from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Scheduled coverage of the 2017 French Open tennis championships from Paris will instead be aired on NBC Sports.
For any on-the-go viewers, the testimony will be streamed live on WSAV.com starting at 10 a.m.
There has been no shortage of buzz around the televised hearing. Some are hailing it as ‘Washington’s Super Bowl,’ while others anticipate a ‘twitterstorm’ from the president.
Whether it is a TV or phone screen, viewers are sure to be glued to them.
