Washington D.C. was abuzz with anticipation this week for the upcoming hearing of former FBI Director James Comey, which is set to take place Thursday, June 8.

Shaw’s Tavern, a bar in the capital, is taking advantage of all the hype surrounding the hearing. It announced that it is opening its doors early and offering a themed viewing party for the event, which is planned to be broadcast on most of the national news networks.

The bar posted on its Facebook page that it would be opening Thursday at 9:30 a.m. ahead of the hearing scheduled to start at 10 a.m. The event is called "The Comey Hearing Covfefe."

“Come on... you know you want to watch the drama unfold this Thursday,” read the post. “We will be opening early at Shaw's Tavern at 9:30am and the hearing starts at 10am on all 5 tv's with sound.”

The bar touts its appropriately themed “$5 Stoli Vodka flavors,” the “FBI” sandwich (a take on the BLT), and the “FBI Breakfast” (French toast, bacon and ice cream).

This is Comey’s first appearance in front of Congress since he was fired by President Trump on May 9, which sent shock waves through Washington.

Comey was heading the FBI investigation into whether or not Trump’s administration was working in collusion with the Russian government during the 2016 election cycle when the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton’s top aide John Podesta was hacked and leaked slowly throughout the campaign.

Since the firing, it was reported that Comey took detailed memos about his interactions with the president, including a conversation where he was asked to stand down from investigating the embattled former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn and pledge his loyalty.

Comey refused to acquiesce to that demand and is expected to answer openly about his interaction with the President, but limit his answers concerning the Russian investigation, according to CNN.

Testimony about Trump asking Comey to stop looking into Flynn has spurred a flurry of questions as to whether or not the President is guilty of trying to obstruct an ongoing FBI investigation.

These reports have gotten comparisons to President Nixon’s coverup of the Watergate scandal and that scandal infamously resulted in Nixon’s abrupt resignation after it was clear that the Congress and Senate were going to vote for his impeachment.

Last month, Deputy Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein appointed Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who has taken the reins on the investigation into Trump’s connections to Russia.

Trump and his sons have denied all wrongdoing concerning the Russian Probe and each have called the probe a “hoax” and “witch hunt.”

“It's the greatest hoax of all time. I was there throughout the campaign. We have no dealings in Russia. We have no projects in Russia. We have nothing to do with Russia,” Eric Trump said in an interview on “Good Morning America” on Tuesday.

“I mean, to me it's without a question you know, reads and smells like a witch hunt,” Donald Trump Jr. said in a separate interview on the show.
