Senate Intel Panel Requests Trump Campaign Documents: Washington Post

The Senate Intelligence Committee, investigating Russian meddling in U.S. 2016 election, has asked President Donald Trumps political organization to hand over all documents going back the campaigns launch in June 2015, the Washington Post reported on Friday, citing two people briefed on the request.

The letter from the Senate panel seeking all documents, emails and telephone records arrived at Trumps campaign committee last week and was addressed to its treasurer, the Post said.

This marked the first time the Trump campaign organization has been drawn into the bipartisan committees investigation into Russian interference in the presidential election, it said.
