Senate intel committee still looking into Russian Federation

"We don't release documents provided by to our committee, period", Burr said.

Richard Burr and Mark Warner - the Republican and Democrat leading the Senate Intelligence Committee's Russian Federation probe - confer during a June hearing on the Kremlin's interference in European elections. Google has also been asked to testify. Facebook now has turned over more than 3,000 of these ads to Congress.

"We've got to make our facts, as it related to Russia's involvement in our election, before the primaries getting started in 2018", Burr said, adding, "You can't walk away from this and believe that Russia's not now active". "It seems that the overall theme of the Russian involvement in the U.S. elections was to create chaos at every level". But that will be done in a very public way if in fact you turn down the private offer, ' he said - brandishing the threat of a public grilling.

In an earlier post on Monday, Joel Kaplan, Facebook's vice-president of global public policy, said the company was planning to hire more than 1,000 people to help review advertisements globally.

"We know the Russian meddling did not end after the elections".

Sessions' recusal from the Russian Federation probe infuriated Trump, who lashed out against him publicly because it helped pave the way for Rosenstein's appointment of Mueller.

"Campaigns spent hundreds of millions advertising online to get their messages out even further".

Some of the ads were targeted to states that had seen police violence, such as Missouri and OH, they said.

The Senate committee investigation is one of just several probing Russia's efforts in the 2016 election, along those conducted by the House Intelligence Committee, Senate Judiciary Committee and the special counsel at the Department of Justice. The company also estimated that overall they were seen by 10 million people in the U.S., which has some 200 million legal voters.

Russian Federation has repeatedly denied any meddling in the election.

"We have more work to do as it relates to collusion, but we are developing a clearer picture of what happened", Burr said. He called the interference attempts an "ongoing challenge", and both senators warned that election officials needed to be prepared heading into upcoming elections.

The "collusion issue is still open", said Republican Senator Richard Burr, standing alongside the committee's top Democrat, Mark Warner.

'And I say this because I don't think we're going to find any intelligence products that unlock that key to pre June of 16.

He went on to say that the investigators on the committee, and the senators themselves, could not come to any determination about the allegations in the report written by former British intelligence office Christopher Steele given that Steele has not cooperated. "And I assume that the same tactics that you saw in Montenegro, in France, in Belgium and in the United States will continue to be tested within our structure of the election process", Burr said.

Steele has declined to testify before the US Congress, and he can not be forced to do that because he's not American.
