The leaders of the Senate panel that is investigating allegations of Russia meddling into the 2016 presidential election are in discussions about issuing an interim report to address election security.

"I think it's very important that we put out something about the importance of protecting our electoral systems before 2018," Sen. Mark Warner, D-Va., the vice chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, told Politico. "How we get out that information is something we're still working through.

"That's one of the considerations that we have. The vice chairman and I, we've had a preliminary meeting, but we haven't firmed anything up," said Richard Burr, R-N.C., the chairman of the committee, said in Politico's report.

The interim report would not be likely to address whether President Donald Trump's campaign colluded with Russia, the report said.

Warner added he did not want an interim report to slow down the progress of the investigation.

"Getting it approved and declassified" could take energy away from the investigation, Warner said in Politico.

Burr and Warner's discussion of an interim report could mean that the probe is expected to keep going into 2018, according to Politico.

In June, Burr told Politico he would like to finish the investigation before the end of the year.

"It can be done," he told reporters at the time.
