Russian-linked Facebook ads targeted MI and Wisconsin

"Campaign staff was attempting to implement what they believed to be guidance to be a strong ally on Ukraine, but also leave the door open for better relations with Russia", Burr said.

But Warner painted a picture of widespread Kremlin-driven activity.

Warner complained that he has seen no evidence that the Trump administration has mounted a government-wide effort to make sure that no foreign power can ever again interfere in an American election.

Warner said the aim was to "sow chaos and drive division in our country".

Burr said the Russians had been "pretty darn successful" in fomenting chaos in the USA political system.

Burr said he did not have a timeline on when the investigation will conclude, though he said somewhat wistfully that his "aspirational goal" was still to end by the end of year. Richard Burr (R-N.C) told reporters Wednesday.

"Those offers have gone unaccepted", Burr said. It was a significant statement from a senior Republican, as the president has dismissed accounts of Russian meddling in the election as "a hoax".

A spokesman for special counsel Robert Mueller declined comment. Later this month, longtime Trump lawyer Michael Cohen is slated to testify in open session before the Senate committee.

Twitter has agreed to appear for a public hearing before the committee on November 1, and Facebook has said it will also participate.

The chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee said Wednesday they have "hit a wall" in trying to probe the origin of a salacious anti-Trump dossier, as the committee forges ahead with its investigation into Russia's interference and possible collusion with Trump campaign associates in the 2016 election.

Facebook officials have said that 10 million people saw Russia-linked advertising that sought to sway the USA presidential election on the social media platform, and 44 percent of those were seen before the election.

Like other companies that sell advertising space, Facebook publishes policies for what it allows, prohibiting ads that are violent, discriminate based on race or promote the sale of illegal drugs.

Earlier this week, Facebook turned over more than 3,000 Russian-linked ads to the House and Senate Intelligence Committees and Senate Judiciary Committee, along with related impression and targeting data and payment information.

Mark Warner criticized Twitter last week for its response to Russian meddling, calling the company's briefing to congressional investigators "deeply disappointing".

He said they had reviewed more than 100,000 pages of documents during their nine-month investigation.

Warner said the panel continues to focus also on the Kremlin's manipulation of social media platforms. "Their response was frankly inadequate on every level". The topics included a campaign event at the Mayflower Hotel when some Trump campaign officials met with then-Russian ambassador Sergey Kislak, the drafting of the Republican party campaign platform as it related to relations with Russia, and the memos taken by former Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey.
