CBS Says It Will Air Comey Testimony

The former FBI director is scheduled to testify before the Senate Intelligence Committee

Suddenly relevant question: Is 7 a.m. too early for popcorn? Broadcasting & Cable reports that CBS will air former FBI director James Comey’s testimony before congress live and in full on Thursday at 10 a.m. EST.

In case you’ve been avoiding the news for the sake of your fleeting sanity, the president reportedly asked Comey to back off the Russia investigation, Comey supposedly said nyet, the president reportedly called Comey a “nut job” and officially canned him. If you want to take a deeper dive, here you go.

Comey is expected to discuss his role in the investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 election. CBS is treating the testimony like a major political event, with Norah O’Donnell, Gayle King, and Charlie Rose co-anchoring.
