The Senate Intelligence Committee has stepped up its investigative efforts of the Trump campaign by asking for all of its communications records.
The Washington Post reports that Trump's campaign committee received a letter from the committee last week and was asked to comply with it. The committee wants to see all documents, emails, and phone records dating back to June 2015 when Trump announced he was running for president.
Committee chairman Sen. Richard Burr, R-N.C., and ranking Democrat Sen. Mark Warner, D-Va., reportedly signed the letter.
There are several ongoing investigations on Capitol Hill into whether the Trump campaign colluded with Russia, in the Senate Judiciary and Intelligence Committees and the House Intelligence and Oversight Committees. There's also a Department of Justice probe, now being overseen by special counsel and former FBI director Robert Mueller.
The Russia has investigation has dogged Trump's presidency since he was inaugurated in January. It was reported Friday night that his son-in-law and senior White House adviser Jared Kushner discussed setting up a secret backchannel to the Kremlin with the Russians during a December meeting.
