Former FBI Director James Comey will face questions about his conversations with President Donald Trump when he testifies before a Senate panel on Thursday.

Fired Federal Bureau of Investigation Director James Comey will appear before a Senate panel on Thursday, in a highly anticipated testimony that will be closely scrutinized for its potential to raise damaging questions about President Donald Trump.

Comey, who was abruptly fired by Trump as FBI chief on May 9, is scheduled to testify at 10 a.m. Eastern before the Senate Intelligence Committee. The panel is investigating Russian efforts to interfere in the 2016 presidential elections, and Comey is expected to face questions about whether Trump pressured him to cancel an investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn, whose links to Russia are under scrutiny.
