The three major television networks—ABC, CBS, and NBC—will air former FBI Director James Comey's congressional testimony live on Thursday.
Comey will testify before the Senate Intelligence Committee, marking his first congressional testimony since being fired by President Trump on May 9. Comey's remarks are highly anticipated after reports that Trump pressured him to end the probe into former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn.
Comey is also expected to testify on Trump's actions surrounding the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election.
ABC, CBC, and NBC will all preempt regular programming to air the testimony.
NBC just announced it will air Comey testimony live. All 3 networks are now preempting regular programming for special report.
