FBI director James Comey will be meeting with the House Intelligence Committee to discuss the investigation into Russia's involvement in the US presidential election.

Comey and director of the National Security Agency Admiral Michael Rogers will be questioned by the panel about what they discovered during their investigation. 

The hearing will also discuss President Trump's accusations of wiretapping against former President Obama. 

Weeks ago when Trump tweeted his accusations, Comey asked senior Justice Department officials to publicly reject the claims.
