Senators to discuss first findings in Russia probe

Senators to discuss first findings in Russia probe”

Burr said the Russian intelligence service is "determined and clever" and "every campaign and every election official" should take it "very seriously".

Burr and the committee's vice chairman, Sen.

The social media company was expected to provide the advertisements to the House and Senate Intelligence Committees and the Senate Judiciary Committee, which are all investigating Russian election interference.

Committee investigators have pored over thousands of pages of classified intelligence, reams of documents turned over by the Trump campaign and other associates of the president and conducted interviews with numerous top officials connected to both the Trump campaign and the intelligence community.

Burr said the committee will have a public hearing on October 25 with Michael Cohen, a longtime Trump lawyer. When it comes to hackers stealing emails and documents from political operatives, Burr said there's no doubt that that happened, but that there's no evidence vote tallies were affected by hackers.

The Senate Intelligence Committee also invited representatives from Google and Twitter to testify.

Schiff said that his committee will seek "to determine what groups and individuals were most heavily targeted and why".

Leaders of the Senate intelligence committee are set to release preliminary findings about Russian intervention in the 2016 election - and publicly warn states, voters and social media companies about how to prevent any future meddling.

Washington has accused Russian Federation of meddling in the November 8 election, with USA congressional investigators launching a probe into alleged interference.

Republican Sen. Richard Burr of North Carolina and Democratic Sen.

Burr said that the committee won't publicly release the content of 3,000 Facebook ads that have been linked to Russian Federation. Mark Warner of Virginia will speak to reporters in the Capitol Wednesday. The White House is not up for grabs in the 2018 elections, but the midterm contests could have an impact on Congress.

Among those under scrutiny are former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort and Trump's oldest son, Donald Trump Jr., who arranged a meeting on June 9, 2016, with Russians who were promising damaging material on Clinton.
