Finally, we'll hear from Comey about Russia (opinion) - CNN.com
Congress is finally set to hear on Monday from FBI Director James Comey about the FBI's investigation into Russia.
The start of this testimony, which will be public, comes at a critical moment for Donald Trump's presidency. A dark cloud has loomed over this administration since the day that he was inaugurated. There has been a continued and steady flow of revelations about how people in the Trump orbit had some kind of connection or interaction with Russian officials at the same time that the US intelligence agencies have claimed there was a concerted effort to intervene in the election to sway the outcome toward the GOP.
The public deserves to know what the FBI has been finding and, just as important, what it has been looking into. The purpose of shifting this investigation into the congressional realm is because there needs to be a public accounting of what took place.
Although public hearings are often just stages for grandstanding, there is a long history, like the Watergate Committee and the Iran Contra Committee, of using these events to allow the public to learn about what happened behind the scenes in an administration. The time has come for Comey to explain what's been going on before television cameras and with reporters in the room. If the FBI is not finding anything that is serious, Americans need to know that as well.
Comey is a asshole and a Trump tool..i don't expect him to do anything but put his ass and what's left of his credibility on the line protecting Trump.

^^^^^^Anybody expect this NOT to be the case?^^^^^^^
As far as the claim by Trump that Obama wiretapped him, I can see him just saying he has not found any evidence of such, and fisa warrant was not asked for to through the FBI. End of story.
