Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats, National Security Agency Director Adm. Mike Rogers, acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein will all testify before the Senate intelligence committee 24 hours before the Comey hearing.
“Director Coats said he’d be happy to tell the whole truth before the appropriate committee, and he promised me when he was confirmed that he would share and assist the investigation,” Virginia Sen. Mark Warner, the vice chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee said to the media.
At the Wednesday hearing, National Security Agency Director Mike Rogers also is expected to face questions about whether he faced pressure from Trump to rebut the stories about potential collusion between Trump associates and Russian officials. Both Rogers and Coats were uneasy about the request, given that the FBI is conducting an investigation about the matter.
Other senators also signaled they’d use the hearing as an opportunity to push for more information about the Comey firing — and the Russia investigation — even though the hearing is supposed to focus on FISA. Andrew McCabe, the acting FBI director, is also expected to testify at Wednesday’s hearing.
