James Comey Testimonial live coverage to be featured at 10 a.m. June 8 on WCNY’s GLOBAL CONNECT TV channel

WCNY, Central New York’s community-owned multimedia organization, will feature “PBS NewsHour’s” live coverage of former FBI Director James Comey’s testimony before the Senate intelligence committee.

Ousted FBI Director James Comey will testify June 8 before the Senate intelligence committee as part of its ongoing investigation into Russia’s alleged interference in the 2016 elections.

Comey, who was fired May 9 by President Donald Trump, is expected to speak about how his agency assessed Russia’s role in November’s election.

Trump drew criticism for removing Comey from his position while Comey was leading an active investigation into Russia’s role in the elections as well as possible ties to members of Trump’s campaign.

Senators will also likely ask Comey about his relationship with the president in the weeks leading up to his firing.

The former FBI director was cleared to testify this week by Robert Mueller, the special counsel now overseeing the agency’s investigation.

Senate intelligence chair Sen. Richard Burr, R-N.C., along with vice chair Sen. Mark Warner, D-Va, said in a statement that Comey’s public testimony will be followed by a closed session with the committee later that day.

The coverage will begin airing at 10 a.m. June 8 on WCNY’s GLOBAL CONNECT channel
