FBI Director Jim Comey and NSA Head Admiral. Michael Rogers will both testify publicly in the House Intelligence Committee’s investigation into Russian interference in the US election, according to Chairman Devin Nunes.

As The Hill reports, Comey has been under fierce pressure from Democrats to reveal whether the bureau is investigating alleged links between Trump’s campaign and Russian officials. His silence on the matter has angered Democrats, given the director’s public accounting last year of the FBI’s investigation into Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton. The FBI director is also facing pressure to reveal whether or not there is any truth to the president’s claims that Trump Tower was “wiretapped.”

This announcement comes minutes before Comey meets with the top members of the Senate Judiciary Committee amid demands that the bureau say if it is investigating any ties between Moscow and the Trump campaign. Sens. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) and Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), the committee’s chairman and ranking member, respectively, told reporters separately that they are expecting to get a closed-door briefing later Wednesday.

“I’ve been told that I’ll have a briefing this afternoon,” Grassley told reporters when asked about reports that Comey was expected to clarify any investigation into ties between the Trump campaign and Russia by Wednesday.
