The eyes of the nation will lock in on the District of Columbia this Thursday for a Senate hearing that some have even taken to calling “Washington's Super Bowl.”
That’ll be when former FBI director James Comey testifies in front of the Senate Intelligence Committee. It will be the first time Comey has testified publicly since his firing.
As reported by the Los Angeles Times, there was some talk that President Trump would use executive privilege to block Comey’s testimony. But Deputy Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Monday that Trump won’t stop the former FBI director from speaking at the hearing.
What kinds of questions will James Comey face from Senators on Thursday? Will Senators stay on topic or will they use the hearing as an opportunity to ask Comey other questions? How forthcoming do you think Comey will be with information?
