Former FBI Director James Comey is testifying Thursday before the Senate Intelligence Committee in a highly anticipated hearing.

Watch the hearing live:

Comey was abruptly fired by President Donald Trump last month, spurring allegations that the president was trying to impede the FBI’s investigation into Russia’s efforts to influence the 2016 presidential election.

Trump reportedly asked Comey to end the bureau’s investigation into former national security advisor Micheal Flynn’s ties to Russia.
