GOP Senate Intel Chair: Russia Probe Will Continue

The Hill reports:

The Senate Intelligence Committee’s investigation into Russian election interference will extend into 2019 as committee members continue to interview witnesses behind closed doors, the committee’s chairman says.

Sen. Richard Burr (R-N.C.) told Bloomberg News on Friday that the committee expects to continue interviewing witnesses next year as the probe is set to begin its third year of existence.

When asked how long the committee will take to issue a report once interviews are concluded, Burr said that as many as “six months” could elapse while warning that future testimony by committee witnesses will likely be private.
