Senate intel committee still looking into Russian Federation

Report: Russian-linked Facebook ads targeted Wisconsin in the 2016 campaign

How did Russia know to exploit race on FB

Burr acknowledged that the investigation into Russia's alleged interference in last year's presidential election was taking a long time but said it was important to "get it right". It continued. They also tried to meddle in elections in France, Germany and other places. "We need to be on guard".

"I fear if you add up all those things it was a decent rate of return", Warner said.

More than 100 witnesses have been interviewed - including former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort and Trump son-in-law Jared Kushner - and more than 100,000 pages of documents have been reviewed, Burr said.

Committee chairman Richard Burr (R-NC) led the announcement by saying that their inquiry has "expanded slightly" though there is no definite conclusion in sight yet. The company had already turned over the ads to the special counsel Robert Mueller.

"We have more work to do as it relates to collusion, but we are developing a clearer picture of what happened", Burr added, emphasizing that no final conclusions have been made by the intelligence panel.

"The issue of collusion is still open". The first is for Trump's personal attorney, Michael Cohen, who had been scheduled for a private staff interview last month, but the committee postponed the appearance and invited him to a public session instead after Cohen provided a statement to the media denying any collusion with Russian officials. Facebook advertisements linked to Russian operatives targeted at least 12 states.

In a noteworthy aside, Burr also suggested that Senate investigators had corroborated some parts of a dossier written by a former British intelligence agent that makes damaging allegations against President Trump and his campaign.

Louis Blues, but the majority of his work took place with the first team that he worked for, the Adirondack Red Wings (AHL). The team is also working with the ECHL to get to wear stickers on the back of its helmets to honor him for the full season.

Instagram Stories gets updated with sticker polls
Along the bottom of the screen, to the left of the spectrum of colors you're used to seeing, you'll see a new eyedropper icon. The temporal nature of Instagram Stories (they're only viewable for 24 hours) makes pairing them with polls a smart idea.

The committee has scheduled only a handful of public hearings, during which intelligence officials and the committee leaders have underscored that last year's elections probably have encouraged Russian Federation to interfere in future US elections.

CNN reported in early January that Trump was briefed on the dossier, which includes allegations about Trump's associates, finances and personal life, and Trump has gone on to dismiss its contents entirely as "phony".

Sources with direct knowledge of the situation say Russian-linked Facebook ads specifically targeted MI and Wisconsin.

In both MI and Wisconsin, Donald Trump beat Hillary Clinton by less than one percentage point.

Burr said the committee had "hit a wall" regarding the verification of the collection of memos about Trump and Russian Federation written by Christopher Steele, a former British spy. The ads, which ran between June 2015 and May 2017, spread controversial views on topics such as immigration and race and promoted 470 "inauthentic" pages and accounts, according to Facebook's own description.

The senators found evidence that Russian Federation had hacked into political parties digital infrastructure and at least tried to test the vulnerabilities of electoral systems in 21 states, and they're concerned that state and federal officials aren't doing enough to prevent future attacks.
