The Senate Intelligence Committee has requested documents from 2016 Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein as it investigates claims of Russian collusion during the campaign.

Dennis Trainor Jr. was the Stein campaign's communications director and acting manager from January-August 2015. He told BuzzFeed News that the committee is looking for records tied to him because he was the "primary point of contact" for people trying to reach Stein and the campaign, a list that includes media company RT — which is funded by the Russian government.

"Then I was told by Jill just to wait for further instructions," Trainor told BuzzFeed.

Trainor said Stein will likely comply with the committee's request and then post the documents online.

Stein's name has surfaced a handful of times during the Russia investigation, most notably being her presence at an RT dinner in Moscow. At the 2015 event, she sat at the head table with Russian President Vladimir Putin, retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, and others.

Flynn pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI as part of special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia probe.
