"The issue of collusion is still open", said Sen.

Burr also said the committee does not have any initial findings on whether the Trump campaign colluded with Russian Federation. Kaplan said the company would require more documentation from advertisers who want to run advertisements related to the USA election.

Burr and committee vice chairman Mark Warner, a Virginia Democrat, gave a briefing about the status of the panel's investigation into Russian interference in the presidential campaign.

The assessment concluded that Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered a campaign to undermine the USA election and favor then-candidate Donald Trump over Hillary Clinton.

"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 said.

"But we don't close our consideration of it", he added.

The former Federal Bureau of Investigation chief testified before the Intelligence panel in June.

He also said that some of the ads were paid for in Russian currency, but said that distinction alone was not a "good way" of identifying suspicious activity. An FBI investigation began in July 2016.

Burr said the committee has made a number of unsuccessful attempts to contact Steele and hopes he will cooperate. "Who were your sources?"

Burr also commented Wednesday on reports from this summer that members of the Trump campaign worked to soften the Republican platform's posture toward Russian Federation, scaling back language related to giving Ukraine lethal defensive aid.

Burr said the Russians had been "pretty darn successful" in fomenting chaos in the US political system.

Burr and Warner said they had invited officials from Google, Facebook and Twitter to testify at a November 1 hearing, to get more information about possible Russian interference with the election via those social media platforms.

"We have interviewed everybody who had a hand or a voice in the creation of the intelligence community assessment", he said. "What about the totally biased and dishonest Media coverage in favor of Crooked Hillary?"

While both Burr and Vice Chairman Sen.

So far, the committee has held 11 open hearings, conducted over 100 interviews spanning more than 250 hours, delved into 4,000 pages of transcripts and analyzed almost 100,000 pages of documents, including highly classified intelligence and cyber security briefings as well as campaign-related files.

The committee has been examining how fake accounts on Facebook and Twitter were used by Russians to promote propaganda and misinformation during the 2016 election. Burr and Warner said the government must be proactive ahead of next year's midterm elections.

Committee staffers have been working 6 to 7 days a week since January on the investigation and have interviewed more than 100 people related to Russia's meddling in the election.
