Head of Senate Russia probe: "The issue of collusion is still open"

"I think at the end of the day it's important that the public see these ads", said Warner, the intelligence committee's vice chairman.

Senator Burr said that Russian Federation also created false accounts to "drive interests toward stories or groups ... to drive division".

"The Russian intelligence service is determined and clever, and I recommend that every campaign and every election official take this very seriously", Burr said.

"The committee continues to look into all evidence to see if there was any hint of collusion", Burr told reporters during a press conference regarding the status of the Russian Federation investigation Wednesday afternoon. "It seems that the overall theme of the Russian involvement in the United States elections was to create chaos at every level. The committee can not really decide the credibility of the dossier without understanding things like who paid for it, who are your sources and sub-sources", Burr added.

"We have interviewed everybody who had a hand or a voice into the creation of the intelligence community assessment", Burr said. "I strongly suggest that you come in and speak with us".

Burr - along with Virginia Democratic Sen. "The committee can not really decide the credibility of the dossier without understanding things like who paid for it, who are your sources and sub-sources". Trump and his associates have called the dossier's contents false.

"As of our meetings today we believe this is the complete list from these three accounts within that time frame, but we are continuing to review our internal data and will report back to the committees as we have more to share", Twitter PublicPolicy said in a post.

Burr said the committee has made a number of unsuccessful attempts to contact Steele and hopes he will cooperate.

The Senate intelligence committee is still into whether Russian Federation colluded with Trump campaign advisers to influence the 2016 election, the panel's chairman has said.

Burr was joined by the Intel Committee's Vice Chair Mark Warner (D-VA) for the briefing, where they boasted about the 100 witness interviewed, the 4,000 pages of transcription produced by those interviews, and the 100,000 pages of documents overall the committee and its staff has reviewed for the probe, which began in January. Only an interview with the former British intelligence officer who produced it, Christopher Steele, could help move things forward, Burr said, but Steele has not agreed to talk.

Among those who have been questioned are former campaign chairman Paul Manafort, as well as Mr Trump's son-in-law and adviser Jared Kushner.

There are several public hearings on the horizon.

More recently investigators for the committee and the House Intelligence Committee have sharpened their attention on Russia's use of social media platforms such as Twitter and Facebook.

On Sept 23, he tweeted, "The Russia hoax continues, now it's ads on Facebook".

A number of Russian-linked Facebook ads specifically targeted MI and Wisconsin, two states crucial to Donald Trump's victory last November, according to four sources with direct knowledge of the situation.

Even more than that, the senators said the Russian meddling did not end after the 2016 elections and will likely continue into the 2018 midterm and 2020 presidential elections.
