The House Intelligence Committee is holding a hearing today to discuss attempts by Russia to interfere in the U.S. presidential election. FBI Director James Comey and Director of the National Security Agency Mike Rogers are offering testimony as witnesses, although they will be posed questions that they're unable to answer in a public forum because they relate to ongoing investigations or classified information.
You can watch a live stream of the hearing below:

Stand on the right side of history!! We need the truth about Russia & Trumps tax returns to see how far the rabbit hole goes. If our democracy has been compromised & you continue to stand by and do nothing your political career will end when the truth comes out... and it eventually will.
My trust has dissolved with all the "alternative facts" coming from the White House. I will not be satisfied until an independent investigation has been conducted under the leadership of a special prosecutor.
Independent panel needed to investigate Trump and all his Russian ties. Get serious about this, the sovereignty of our nation has been attacked. Republicans are more interested in who leaked information than in investigating any collusion between Trump and Russia.
If these hearings don't include a subpoena for Trump's tax returns, for the last 10 years, then it is not independent, and not attempting to verify his many claims. We must know where his money has been coming from, and where he owes money too. Tax returns should be required of anyone serving as President. The citizens are the employer and we are entitled to complete transparency. These hearings are to determine any ties he has with Russia, and his tax returns should be the first place any investigation would start. Follow the money.
We need an INDEPENDENT committee!! Director Comey already swayed the last election with revisiting Clinton's emails and then saying there was nothing new. He definitely did it to manipulate the election. He is in the big money pockets of Trump and his wealthy cronies.
An independent inquiry is absolutely a necessity. There are far too many coincidences & ties to Russian banks, oligarchs & Putin. Nearly all of Trumps cabinet has suspicious dealings with Russia.
Independent prosecutor should be appointed, this is a serious matter that need investigated.
After today's hearing and how the Republicans blatantly ignored the fact that Trump is under investigation, it is clear more than ever that there needs to be a bi-partisan independent investigation. COUNTRY OVER PARTY! 1. Trump was lying about wire taps. 2. Russia was hacking us. 3. GCHQ didn't tap Trump. 4. The FBI is investigating. PUSH FOR AN INDEPENDENT INVESTIGATION NOW!!!
House Intelligence Republicans pushing to convict the messenger rather than the perpetrator, White House already trying to put a alternative spin on what Director Comey and Rogers said!!! Won't back down on wiretapes even now! Yikes!! I learned Tillerson is just as corrupt as Flynn, Sessions! To me it became even more obvious we need to pursue the Russian meddling into our democracy. If we can't do it with Republican gas lighters, we need an independent committee, form it before these losers can sweep it under the rug!
I have no faith in anyone in the intelligence community. Comey is not to be trusted. He lied about all the Clinton emails. He will lie about this too.
It looks as if # 45 and the majority of his cabinet have numerous ties to Vladimir Putin and to Russia. An independent investigation – not a Republican cover up – should be held, until we get to the bottom of what appears to be corruption, and possibly interference in our election with inappropriate ties to Russia of the cabinet, family, and inappropriate businesses of number 45. How is this corrupt president being allowed to break laws that no one else could ever break? I don't understand why the country is plummeting into a Fascist dictatorship with no mention of this fact nor any response to prevent it? In contrast Holland was bright enough to just say no to their Fascist dictator wannabe. Would that we were able to ignore distractions and get to the truth in our own country. Help!
This idiot FBI director can not be trusted he works for 45 and the republicans. He was against Clinton when she ran for President.We need an independent investigation on this most import issue facing America . We have a traitor and a Russian spy as president . He needs to be impeached.Shame on you who voted for this child rapist etc. president and the Republicans they have sold our democracy to the one percent wealthy individuals and Russia. Vote out these republicans in 2018 and take our country back from them.
The investigation should be allowed to continue no matter what is discovered during it. It's also important to keep the public appraised of information.
I am not sure how after hearing what was just stated about our current Secretary of State you could nominate anyone Trump nominates. We should instead be focusing on drawing up Articles of Impeachment Period.
My question is, when will you impeach this traitor?
Please push for as thorough, complete and independent investigation as possible. This is becoming a circus.
NOW IT IS HIGH TIME FOR ALL DEMOCRATS TO DECLARE A NATIONAL EMERGENCY AND CEASE ALL BUSINESS UNTIL IT HAS BEEN ESTABLISHED WHETHER TRUMP AND HIS COHORTS ARE CRIMINALS AND OR TRAITORS BY A CREDIBLE INDEPENDENT INVESTIGATION AND AN INDEPENDENT SPECIAL PROSECUTOR !!!
I look forward to the results of today's testimony from the FBI Director. More shall be revealed, perhaps some inconvenient truths.
We need to investigate trump's ties to Russia financially. We need trumps complete income taxes. I feel we could learn a lot from them. I also feel we have huge conflicts of interest with trump's use of his Florida resort and his Washington hotel and who knows whatela
We absolutely need an independent investigation free from any taint of political bias to resolve the ever mounting and extremely serious questions regarding the current administration's ties to Russia. If there is nothing to hide then a thorough independent, nonpartisan and transparent investigation will only benefit all parties concerned. The American people will have the answers and reassurance we deserve. The Democrats too will have their questions answered and then be able to move forward. And the administration could be vindicated. It would be a win-win-win IF there is nothing to hide... But this can only happen if the investigation is free from even the slightest appearance of political bias or influence. I believe there are some on both sides of the aisle who are sincere in their determination to get to the bottom of what has or has not occurred. But it seems for every Congressman committed to truth finding there are at least 2 others committed to circumventing a full airing out of the facts. As a result, any findings by this current Congress will inherently be viewed with suspicion and skepticism and this dark storm of "what if?" will continue to threaten our democracy. The same can be said for the FBI. Unfortunately, Director Comey's erratic and questionable behavior during the campaign has rendered him ineffective to fully resolve this issue. Even if he were to genuinely act outside of political influence or personal bias how could we ever trust it to be so? Republican lawmakers who do not support a fully independent investigation are not doing themselves or their cause any favors, but rather only adding to the ever increasing level of confusion and distrust that is crippling this nation. Please support and advocate for an independent investigation /special prosecutor.
