ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Former FBI Director James Comey left his home in McLean, Virginia on Thursday morning to testify before the Senate in the most widely anticipated congressional hearing in years. Comey is expected to tell Congress that President Donald Trump pressed him repeatedly to halt a probe into his ex-national security adviser's ties with Russia and to declare publicly that Trump himself was not under investigation. The outcome could have significant repercussions for Trump's 139-day-old presidency as special counsel Robert Mueller and multiple congressional committees investigate whether Trump's campaign team colluded with Russia during the 2016 presidential election. The White House and Russia deny any collusion occurred.
