Rep. Adam Schiff said Thursday that the House Intelligence Committee won’t release an interim report on the investigation into Russian digital election interference.

"In terms of an interim report, it will be a challenge enough for us to reach a final report," Schiff, the committee’s ranking member, said at Politico's Pro Policy Summit.

The California Democrat added that he’s unsure if he’s willing to "take on the additional obligation."

The top members of the Senate Intelligence Committee have discussed providing the public with an update about their probe.

"That’s one of the considerations that we have," chairman Sen. Richard Burr, R-NC, told Politico. "The vice chairman and I, we've had a preliminary meeting, but we haven't firmed anything up," said Burr, referring to ranking Sen. Mark Warner, D-Virginia.

Schiff would not answer when the House investigation would finish, saying, "There's a lot that we need to know further from the social media companies," about the role they played in the spread of misinformation from Moscow.

"Can the social media platforms point us to any evidence that the level of sophistication in the targeting or message is incompatible with a lack of coordination with the campaign, with a lack of coordination with a data analytical operation," Schiff said Thursday, according to Bloomberg. "They may or may not be able to shed light on that."

The congressman also said he wants those companies to testify about any Russian entities that bought political ads for specific locations during the election.
