The panel is among several congressional committees, along with the Department of Justice's special counsel Robert Mueller, investigating alleged Russian interference in the 2016 presidential campaign and potential collusion by President Donald Trump's campaign.

Moscow has denied any meddling. Trump has said there was no collusion.
