A day after releasing an advance copy of his opening statement, former F.B.I. director James Comey arrived on Capitol Hill Thursday to testify before the Senate Intelligence Committee on Thursday.

The public portion of Comey’s highly anticipated testimony is being broadcast on a number of TV networks and online platforms, and marks the first time the former F.B.I. director will speak publicly since he was fired by President Donald Trump last month.

With all eyes on Washington, many reacted on Twitter as Comey was questioned by the 15-member group about his private conversations with the president earlier this year regarding the F.B.I.‘s investigation into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian forces during the 2016 election.
