WASHINGTON (AP) — Leaders of the Senate intelligence committee are set to release preliminary findings about Russian intervention in the 2016 election — and publicly warn states, voters and social media companies about how to prevent any future meddling.
Republican Sen. Richard Burr of North Carolina and Democratic Sen. Mark Warner of Virginia will speak to reporters in the Capitol Wednesday. The idea is to lay out what some of what the committee has found as the 2018 midterm elections approach.
Since Burr and Warner began the investigation in January, the panel has interviewed dozens of intelligence and political officials to assess the extent of Russian interference in last year’s election. The committee, along with several others in Congress, is also investigating any connections between the Russian meddling and President Donald Trump‘s campaign.
