FBI Director James Comey will testify before a Senate committee next week and the hearing will likely focus on the bureau's investigation into potential ties between President Donald Trump and Russia.

The Hill reports that Comey will answer questions before the Senate Judiciary Committee on May 3. The hearing is called "Oversight of the Federal Bureau of Investigation," an annual exercise that allows Congress to check in with the nation's top law enforcement agency.

The topic of discussion, however, will most likely be Russia.

Comey has been to Capitol Hill twice this year, in January and in March, to testify for committees digging into Russia's involvement in last year's U.S. presidential election. He has also met with lawmakers on the Senate Intelligence Committee for closed sessions to talk more on the matter.

Next Wednesday's session could include questions about Carter Page, a former Trump campaign aide who is alleged to have had an improper relationship with the Russians — a claim he denied.
