Russian Agents Sought Secret US Treasury Records On Clinton Backers During 2016 Campaign
Whistleblowers said the Americans were exchanging messages with unsecure Gmail accounts set up by their Russian counterparts as the US election heated up.
US Treasury Department officials used a Gmail back channel with the Russian government as the Kremlin sought sensitive financial information on its enemies in America and across the globe, according to documents reviewed by BuzzFeed News.
The extraordinary unofficial line of communication arose in the final year of the Obama administration — in the midst of what multiple US intelligence agencies have said was a secret campaign by the Kremlin to interfere in the US election. Russian agents ostensibly trying to track ISIS instead pressed their American counterparts for private financial documents on at least two dozen dissidents, academics, private investigators, and American citizens.
Most startlingly, Russia requested sensitive documents on Dirk, Edward, and Daniel Ziff, billionaire investors who had run afoul of the Kremlin. That request was made weeks before a Russian lawyer showed up at Trump Tower offering top campaign aides “dirt” on Hillary Clinton — including her supposed connection to the Ziff brothers.

Comey Testimony to House Judiciary and Oversight - The Atlantic
James Comey spent hours on Friday talking about Hillary Clinton’s emails before the House Judiciary and Oversight Committees. In the end, he seemed bored—and annoyed.
Whatever Republicans on the House Judiciary and Oversight Committees thought they were going to get from Friday’s deposition of former FBI Director James Comey, it doesn’t appear they got it. The proof will come when a transcript of the deposition is released on Saturday, part of a deal Comey struck to testify, having initially resisted a subpoena. But no one seemed especially satisfied on Friday.
Certainly not Comey, who is apparently as sick of hearing about Hillary Clinton’s “damn emails” as Bernie Sanders was two years ago.
“After a full day of questioning, two things are clear to me,” he groused. “One, we could have done this in open setting. And two, when you read the transcript, you will see that we are talking again about Hillary Clinton’s emails, for heaven’s sakes, so I’m not sure we need to do this at all.”
Democrats were similarly disgruntled.
“I was left with the impression that, you know, basically this is a big wild goose chase,” said Representative Raja Krishnamoorthi of Illinois. “It reinforced my view that the Clinton probe has fully run its course.”

Comey resists closed-door Congress interview, says he's seen enough 'selective leaking and distortion'
The former FBI director said he would happily appear before the House Judiciary Committee again, but only if it happens publicly.
WASHINGTON — Former FBI chief James Comey said Thursday he will resist a subpoena to appear before a congressional committee on Dec. 3 unless that happens publicly because House Republicans will distort anything he says behind closed doors.
"I'm still happy to sit in the light and answer all questions," he tweeted.
The House Judiciary Committee chairman, Rep. Bob Goodlatte of Virginia, subpoenaed Comey as part of an investigation into FBI decisions made during the 2016 election, when Democrat Hillary Clinton was cleared in a probe into her email use and agents opened an investigation into Donald Trump's campaign and Russia.

Opinion | Alexander Soros: The Hate That Is Consuming Us - The New York Times
Bombs sent to my father, George Soros, and to former President Obama and Hillary Clinton are a result of our politics of demonizing opponents.
On Monday afternoon an explosive device was delivered to my father’s home north of New York City. An alert member of our staff recognized the threat and called the police. Fortunately, the authorities were able to detonate the device safely. On Wednesday, the Secret Service said it had intercepted similar devices sent to the offices of former President Barack Obama and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
We are all grateful that no one was injured, and grateful to those who kept us safe. But the incident was profoundly disturbing — as a threat not just to the safety of our family, neighbors, colleagues and friends, but also to the future of American democracy.
