FBI and NSA chiefs to be quizzed on Russia link probes

The directors of the Federal Bureau of Investigation and National Security Agency will break their public silence today about their investigations into possible links between Russia and President Donald Trump's campaign at a rare open congressional intelligence committee hearing.

Representatives Devin Nunes, chairman of the House of Representatives Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, and Adam Schiff, the panel's top Democrat, have called FBI Director James Comey and NSA Director Admiral Mike Rogers to testify as part of their committee's probe into allegations that Russia interfered in US elections.

Other congressional committees also are investigating the matter, mostly behind closed doors.

But amid a furore over whether Russsia tried to influence the 2016 presidential race on Mr Trump's behalf, politicians said they would make public as much of their probes as possible.

Russia denies attempting to influence the election.
