FBI Director James Comey did not answer all questions from a House intelligence panel about the investigation into possible Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. election, a Democratic U.S. congressman said on Thursday.
“I would say at this point we know less than a fraction of what the FBI knows,” U.S. Representative Adam Schiff, the top Democrat on the Republican-led committee, told reporters.
“The director spent about three to 3-1/2 hours with us and on the areas he was willing to discuss we had a very in-depth set of questions and answers,” Schiff said, “But there were very large areas that were walled off, and those walls are going to have to come down if we are going to do our job.”

Activists walked out of the Democratic National Committee's summer meeting in San Francisco after the organization voted against allowing a climate change debate during the 2020 primary.
DNC Chair Tom Perez imposed strict rules on the debates, which prevented a climate change debate from occurring. Climate activists had forced a vote, hoping to overrule the party boss.
Photojournalist Steve Rhodes attended the meeting and documented the outrage among climate activists, including the "a failure of leadership" chant.

Trump’s threat to ‘hereby’ force manufacturers to do his bidding stomped by legal analyst
President Donald Trump is claiming extraordinary powers in his escalating trade war with China.
On Friday, Trump demanded that American companies look for alternatives to China.
"Our great American companies are hereby ordered to immediately start looking for an alternative to China, including bringing your companies home and making your products in the USA," Trump tweeted.
Of course, the president has no power to order such a thing.
Trump then announced massive tariffs on China, citing the Emergency Economic Powers Act of 1977.
