Senate Intelligence Committee Not Ready to Close Russia Probe

Senate Intelligence Committee Not Ready to Close Russia Probe

"It seems that the overall theme of the Russian involvement in the US elections was to create chaos at every level". "I'm giving you the feedback we got from the individuals who were in the room making the decisions". Warner, intelligence committee ranking member said.

Congress and special counsel Robert Mueller are trying to determine whether Trump associates helped the Russians in targeting the ads.

The Republican said the panel can not determine the dossier's credibility without understanding who paid for it and who contributed to the material.

Burr said the committee had interviewed seven people about that meeting, and that "the testimony of all seven were consistent with each other". The panel also talked to everyone involved with the changing of the Republican platform on Ukraine, and Burr said the staff believed in what they were implementing.

Trump has repeatedly referred to the Russian campaign to interfere in the presidential election as a "hoax" invented by Democrats. "Now, I'm not even going to discuss initial findings because we haven't any".

"We have not come to any determination on collusion or Russia's preferences".

"The issue of collusion is still open, that we continue to investigate both intelligence and witnesses, and that we're not in a position where we will come to any type of temporary finding on that until we've completed the process", Burr said.

The simple quantity of investigation that still must be done - at this hearing and through the committee's other efforts - suggests that the Senate committee's work may carry on for several more months.

"I also strongly believe that the RT ads on Twitter should be made public; a review of a representative sample reveals that they are nearly entirely created to push Russian news coverage adverse to Secretary Clinton's campaign", said Schiff in a statement.

Burr said the committee has "hit a wall" in its investigation of a former British spy's explosive dossier on purported Russian support for Trump's 2016 campaign.

"Among the most pernicious features of Russian interference was the cynical and calculated use of social media to divide Americans and exploit our internal divisions", Schiff said in his statement.

Warner later added that there was a "large consensus" that Russians had hacked into political files and strategically released them with the goal of influencing the election. The tech giants came under intense pressure to disclose everything they knew about how foreign actors had exploited their platforms after Facebook said last month that 470 "inauthentic accounts" linked to Russian Federation had purchased political ads between 2015 and 2016. The committee has asked executives from Facebook, Twitter and Google to appear before it on 1 November, and Facebook announced on Wednesday that it would attend.

Asked at the briefing whether his committee had seen "any evidence of a nexus between these Russian Facebook ads" and any political campaign, Burr put off answering.
