The Senate Intelligence Committee “not done yet,” with a probe into Russia’s interference in the 2016 election, including whether the Trump campaign was involved.
But the panel is aiming to wrap up the investigation, Intelligence Committee Chairman Richard Burr, R-N.C., said Tuesday.
“Every time you interview somebody you might learn of somebody new,” Burr said when asked about the closed-door probe. “But, we hope we are near the end.”
Burr said he does not feel pressured to conclude the investigation now that the House Intelligence Committee announced it has completed its own examination of the 2016 election and Russia’s meddling and concluded the Trump campaign was not involved.
“We’re not done yet,” Burr said, adding the panel is not “done interviewing witnesses.”
The House and Senate have for months been interviewing witnesses and reviewing documents related to the 2016 election and whether Russia worked to influence the outcome. The investigation includes scrutiny of the Trump campaign, which Democrats say worked with Russia to ensure Hillary Clinton's defeat. Democrats have denounced the House Intelligence announcement clearing the Trump campaign.
