Deep State takes another whack at Trump
(INTELLIHUB) — CNN’s Manu Raju has confirmed that the Senate Intelligence Committee is investigating the alleged ‘Russian interference of the 2016 U.S. Presidential Election’ and any potential Russian ties to Trump campaign staffers.
Chairman Richard Burr, R-North Carolina along with Sen. Mark Warner, D-Virginia, are heading up the panel which has already put out requests to a number of agencies, organizations, and individuals, 12 in total, requesting that they preserve any and all information or communications that fall within the scope of the investigation.
FBI Dir. James Comey attended the classified panel behind closed doors Friday where members decided to expand their investigation into Russia’s alleged meddling with the U.S. election system.
Reporting over the phone for CNN, Raju said that the panel is very concerned with any potential contacts or conversations Trump campaign staffers or transition team members may have had with the Russians.
Ruju also said according to reports “certain [Trump] campaign officials” had “constant contact” with “Russian operatives during the campaign.”
The Senate Intelligence Committee is doing a “deep dive,” Raju said.
“What they want are records to make sure that nothing that the Trump administration or that any federal agency has relating to Russia should be destroyed. They want to preserve these documents, review them and they have the power to subpoena those as well.”
Additionally, Raju reported that several other investigations into the matter are currently underway but are slow-going.
