President Trump will host a campaign-style rally in Louisville, Kentucky on Monday evening in the wake of the House Intelligence Committee's first public hearing on Russia's alleged interference in the 2016 election.

The rally, which is expected to draw thousands, comes after FBI Director James Comey denied Trump's claims that his predecessor, former President Barack Obama, had wiretapped his campaign. Comey said there is no evidence any such surveillance took place, and also confirmed his agency's criminal investigation into the alleged Russian involvement in the election for the first time publicly.
