'Trump dossier' on Russian Federation links now part of special counsel's probe

'Trump dossier' on Russian Federation links now part of special counsel's probe

Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Richard Burr (R-N.C.) (L) and committee Vice Chair Mark Warner (D-Va.) hold a news conference on the status of the committee's inquiry into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election at the Capitol on October 4, 2017 in Washington.

On Wednesday, the Senate panel's chairman Richard Burr told reporters that the issue of whether Trump's campaign colluded with Russian Federation remains an open question.

Burr caveated that they are not closing the door on investigating the memos entirely, saying that the panel has explored every detail and interviewed every witness available to them at this time. "It seems that the overall theme of the Russian involvement in the USA elections was to create chaos at every level".

Aside from oversight of the intelligence assessment, the probe includes an ongoing look into any collusion by either campaign with the Kremlin during the 2016 election, as well as ongoing Russian active measures.

We're learning more about the investigation into Russia's 2016 presidential election meddling, and what role MI may play in it.

He listed three areas where they have exhausted their investigations but did not make any conclusive statements about any of them.

The committee is one of several that are investigating Russian interference in the election and potential collusion between Russia and associates of the Trump campaign.

"I was concerned at first that some of these social media platform companies did not take this threat seriously enough", Warner said "I believe they are taking it seriously now".

Russian Federation has repeatedly said it does not interfere in the affairs of other countries.

Sources with direct knowledge of the situation say Russian-linked Facebook ads specifically targeted MI and Wisconsin.

But content of the 3,000 Facebook adverts linked to Russian Federation will not be publicly released.

Also questioned were senior executives of social media companies such as Facebook and Twitter, which displayed numerous Russian-supported advertisements that were meant to exacerbate divisions among voters on hot-button issues before the election.

Burr said the committee has "hit a wall" in its attempts to interview the main author, Christopher Steele, who lives in London. The company had already turned over the ads to the special counsel Robert Mueller.

Senator Burr added: "I think there is general consensus among members and staff we trust the conclusions".

"Reviewing ads means assessing not just the content of an ad, but the context in which it was bought and the intended audience - so we're changing our ads review system to pay more attention to these signals", the company said.

Facebook intends to testify in front of the Senate Intelligence Committee at a hearing next month, a source with knowledge of the matter told CNN Wednesday.
