Russian Probe Continues as Senate Intelligence Committee Searches for Hints of Collusion

Today, Senator Richard Burr (R-NC) stated that the Intelligence Committee is continuing to search for any hint of evidence they could find.

The Intelligence Committee’s report clearly discusses Russia’s role in attempting to undermine the 2016 Presidential Election. Russia strived to spread false, negative stories of Secretary Hillary Clinton while promoting then Candidate Donald Trump.

According to Burr, over the past eight months the committee reviewed over 400,000 pages of transcripts of interviews with over 100 officials, reviewed 100,000 pages of classified documents, and has interviewed members of the Obama Administration Cabinet.

Burr noted that the issue of collusion between the Trump Campaign and the Russian Government is still up for investigation. The committee also looked into the change of the GOP platform which softened its stance on Russia.

Inverstiagtors are examining Russia’s social media spread of ‘fake news’ on Facebook, Twitter, and Google.
