( CNN) FBI Director James Comey revealed few new details in a classified briefing with the House intelligence committee Thursday about the bureau’s investigation into Russia meddling, sources told, leaving some members uncertain about the scope of the inquiry and frustrated that they didn’t learn more.

The long-awaited briefing from Comey, and National Security Agency Director Mike Rogers, had been scheduled behind closed doors specifically so that the FBI director would be able to divulge more about the federal government’s Russia probe. But under lingering questioning, sources told, Comey did not uncover much more than he did publicly.

During the roughly two-hour hearing, sources told, a number of the Republicans and Democrats on the House Russia investigation stuck close to the same partisan lines of questioning that Comey tolerated during a March public hearing before the panel.
