The Senate Intelligence committee is set to review Russia's interference in the 2016 election, according to CNN. The probe will look at intelligence "regarding links between Russia and individuals associated with political campaigns."
The committee's chairman, Sen. Richard Burr, R-NC, and the committee's vice chairman, Sen. Mark Warner, D-VA, said in a joint statement, "The Committee will follow the intelligence wherever it leads."
The scope of the Committee's inquiry is described in three parts, but not limited to a review of the intelligence, counterintelligence concerns related to Russia and the 2016 U.S. election, and other "active measures" directed against the U.S.
The Committee said it will hold hearings, interview senior officials and produce unclassified and classified documents, the statement added.
"This issue impacts the foundations of our democratic system, it’s that important," said Vice Chairman Warner. "This requires a full, deep, and bipartisan examination. At this time, I believe that this Committee is clearly best positioned to take on that responsibility, but whoever does this needs to do it right."
People have long awaited the probe.
