The hearing will be the first in-depth public inquiry into allegations of collusion between the Russian government and Donald Trump’s campaign, to influence the U.S. election.
Some people are sick of politics. I’m over here counting down 12 days until Comey and Yates testify before the House Intelligence Committee.
