Former FBI director James Comey is scheduled to testify before the Senate Intelligence Committee on Thursday morning about reports that President Trump attempted to derail the FBI's investigation into Russian interference in last year's presidential election. In written testimony released Wednesday, Comey described how Trump asked for a pledge of loyalty and for the FBI to drop the inquiry into former national security advisor Michael Flynn. We'll discuss Comey's testimony and its potential impact.
