Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley has asked FBI Director Christopher Wray whether the agency had warned of Russian operatives trying to "infiltrate" the Trump campaign.

Grassley, the Iowa Republican, wrote Wray on Wednesday asking if agency officials gave "defensive briefings" or otherwise alerted the Trump operation about "potential connections between campaign officials and the Russian government," The Hill reported.

"If the FBI did provide a defensive briefing or similar warning to the campaign, then that would raise important questions about how the Trump campaign responded," Grassley wrote.

If the FBI did not brief Trump officials, Grassley asked Wray why not and whether any such decision was influenced by an unsubstantiated dossier that surfaced during the campaign, The Hill reported.

Grassley asked Wray for a response by Oct. 4.
