The Day - - WORLD & NATION -

Wash­ing­ton — For­mer FBI di­rec­tor James Comey met be­hind closed doors Fri­day with mem­bers of two House pan­els as part of a po­lit­i­cally fraught in­quiry into the con­duct of fed­eral law en­force­ment of­fi­cials dur­ing in­ves­ti­ga­tions of the Trump cam­paign’s al­leged Rus­sia ties and Hil­lary Clin­ton’s use of a pri­vate email server while sec­re­tary of state. The ses­sion is ex­pected to con­tinue on Dec. 17. Law­mak­ers on the House Ju­di­ciary and Over­sight com­mit­tees pep­pered Comey with ques­tions on a range of top­ics, in­clud­ing the sub­stance of his memos con­cern­ing his in­ter­ac­tions with Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump, the de­tails of his fir­ing and his knowl­edge of the ori­gins of the FBI’s Rus­sia in­ves­ti­ga­tion.
