Additional Investigations


There are several additional ongoing investigations into various aspects of Russia’s interference in the 2016 election, the Trump campaign’s potential knowledge of or cooperation with Russian interference, and any possible ties between Trump campaign officials and Russian or pro-Russian foreign actors.  NPR offers a clear summary of some of those inquiries:

  • The Senate Armed Services Committee, led by Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., has been tasked with looking for ways to improve cyber security and protect against future hacking by foreign actors.

  • The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee has been looking at Flynn's payments from Russia and Turkey. Ranking Democrat Elijah Cummings of Maryland has largely driven the narrative on that angle, releasing evidence at various times. The committee also joined the Senate Judiciary Committee, with oversight of the FBI, and the Senate Intelligence Committee in requesting copies of Comey's memos detailing private interactions with Trump.

  • The House Financial Services Committee's Democratic members have been requesting documents from Deutsche Bank to investigate whether Trump has been given any loans backed by Russian interests.
