The intelligence collected last summer was considered by the authorities to be legitimate enough to be shared with the FBI, which is continuing its investigation into the allegations of collusion between Trump's associates and Russian officials in order to sway the 2016 United States of America presidential election. Not only that, but the FBI is investigating potential collusion between Trump associates and Russian Federation to help in that effort - in Russia's interest.Brennan said he is "aware of information and intelligence that revealed contacts and interactions between Russian officials and United States of America persons involved in the Trump campaign".

The leaders of the Senate Russia investigation, Sens.

The Senate panel's investigation is among several in Congress into Russian interference in the election, and is separate from a probe into the matter being led by a special counsel appointed last week by the Justice Department, former Federal Bureau of Investigation Director Robert Mueller.

The Senate Intelligence Committee, investigating Russian meddling in USA 2016 election, has asked President Donald Trump's political organization to hand over all documents going back the campaign's launch in June 2015, the Washington Post reported on Friday, citing two people briefed on the request.

"We'd like to hear from Gen. Flynn", he said. Richard Burr, R-N.C., and Sen.

Trump Tells Allies He Plans to Remove US From Paris Climate Agreement
President Donald Trump stands in front of a USA flag at Sigonella Air Force Base in Sigonella, Sicily, Italy, May 27, 2017 . On Saturday, Trump said in a Twitter post he would make a decision on whether to support the Paris climate deal next week.

Former CIA Director John Brennan says he can't say whether there was collusion during the US presidential election between Russian Federation and Donald Trump's campaign, but he knew there was reason to have investigators "pull those threads".

"I know what the Russians try to do", he told the committee.

"There may a series of cases where we have facts about people having contacts with Russians prior to the campaign and sharing of information that may fall short of legal collusion, but still be factual that we need to report to the American people in terms of our counterintelligence investigation".

Brennan said the CIA focuses on intelligence, not "evidence", and he was not able to answer that question.

He says the Russian intelligence official denied that Russia was meddling, but said he would raise the issue with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

It also came after The Washington Post reported that Trump had pressed his Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats and National Security Agency Director Michael Rogers to publicly deny any evidence of ties between his campaign and Russian Federation.

The Justice Department says Robert Mueller's work at a law firm that represented relatives and associates of President Donald Trump does not disqualify him from overseeing an FBI investigation into possible ties between Trump's presidential campaign and Russian Federation.

He was asked about a Washington Post that said Trump asked Coats and Michael Rogers, the director of the National Security Agency, to push back against an FBI investigation that's been examining potential coordination between Moscow and the presidential campaign. Before becoming Trump's national security adviser, Flynn ran a consulting firm called the Flynn Intel Group.

Warner said one subpoena had been served and that he expected the second one to be served Tuesday evening. The FBI is also conducting a counterintelligence investigation into Russian Federation and the Trump campaign.
