Committee looking into efforts to influence 2016 election.

— -- The Senate Intelligence Committee sent letters to at least a dozen agencies, individuals and organizations on Friday directing them to preserve records and information related to the committee's investigation of Russian efforts to influence the 2016 election, according to a Senate aide.

Both the House and Senate intelligence committees previously announced investigations focused on Russian interference in the election.

"We will cast a wide net to look at individuals who can provide us additional insight into what went on," Burr told reporters on Tuesday.
