FBI Director Christopher Wray will testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee at 1o a.m. ET Tuesday, the first testimony from Wray since the attack on Congress on Jan. 6.

The ongoing criminal investigation into the hundreds of Trump supporters who stormed the Capitol building that day constitutes one of the largest investigations in FBI history.

Former President Donald Trump nominated Wray to lead the FBI in June 2017. Wray was confirmed by the Senate that August. FBI directors serve 10-year terms. White House press secretary Jen Psaki said last month that President Joe Biden “intends to keep FBI Director Wray on in his role and he has confidence in the job he is doing.”
