FROM Jason Benjamin
'Suited' For most people, buying clothes is not a big deal. But when you’re transgender, or gender non-conforming, it’s a different story. Fitting who you are takes on more meaning when you feel like you are not who your body says you are. A New York tailor has built a business catering to these customers. They come in to buy custom-fitted suits, and it’s often a profoundly emotional experience. Jason Benjamin captured that experience in his documentary Suited , which premiered this week at Sundance.

Previewing James Comey's blockbuster testimony Former FBI director James Comey testifies Thursday in front of the Senate Intelligence Committee, but his opening statement has been released. In it, he says he felt pressured by Donald Trump to declare loyalty to him and publicly clear him of any wrongdoing in the Russia investigation.
Accusations of lying fly between James Comey and White House During his testimony Thursday, former FBI Director James Comey accused President Trump and other White House officials of lying when they said the FBI was in disarray and its staff had lost confidence in him. President Trump’s lawyer said Comey was wrong -- that the president never asked for his loyalty, and never asked him to back off the investigation into former NSA director Michael Flynn.
