Probe continues into possible Russian collusion with Trump campaign

Senate Select Committee on Intelligence Vice Chairman Mark Warner D-Va. left joined by Chairman Richard Burr R-N.C. updates reporters on the status of their inquiry into Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. elections at the Capitol in Washington W

Mark Warner, D-Virginia, asserted that they won't discuss their committee's specific initial Russian Federation investigation findings, they said that the results thus far have caused the inquiry to expand "slightly".

"The committee continues to look into all evidence to see if there was any hint of collusion".

According to the Chairman Richard Burr, it took time for tech leaders to warm up to the notion that they were responsible for influence campaigns run on their platforms.

The leaders of the Senate Intelligence Committee announced Wednesday they will no longer pursue details surrounding the memos former FBI Director James Comey wrote as personal recollections of his conversations with President Trump about the Russian Federation investigation.

Three sources with knowledge of Mueller's probe said his investigators have assumed control of multiple inquiries into allegations by USA intelligence agencies that Russian Federation interfered in the election to benefit Trump, a Republican.

"Those offers have gone unaccepted", Burr said.

"We will share with you when we have exhausted every thread of intelligence, every potential witness that can contribute anything to this", he said.

Washington has accused Russian Federation of meddling in the November 8 election, with U.S. congressional investigators launching a probe into alleged interference. He was joined by the committee's top Democrat, Sen.

TechCrunch has reached out to Facebook about its reaction to today's committee briefing and will update if and when we hear back.

The FBI has also reportedly used some materials from the dossier in its successful request for a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant to conduct surveillance on Trump personal friend and associate Carter Page. "The committee can not really decide the credibility of the dossier without understanding things like who paid for it, who are your sources and sub-sources". 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.

The committee has spoken behind closed doors to members of the intelligence community as well as Trump's inner circle, including former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort and Kushner.

"This topic has been hotly debated, and the committee is satisfied that our involvement with this issue has reached a logical end as it relates to the Russian Federation investigation", he said.

CNN reported earlier this year that US intelligence officials collaborated some aspects of Christopher Steele's findings though not some of the more salacious allegations like the link between Trump and Russian prostitutes.

The Senate panel has also been focused on Russian efforts to push out social media messages on Twitter and Facebook, and is examining more than 3,000 Russia-linked ads that Facebook turned over to Congress this week. Some of the Russian-bought Facebook ads specifically targeted swing states like Michigan, Wisconsin, Ohio and Florida, as well as other states whose Electoral College votes were not truly contested during the election, a source familiar with the matter told CNN.
