Mr Bortnikov twice denied Russia had interfered with the election but said he would carry Mr Brennan's message to Russian President Vladimir Putin.

The Justice Department says Attorney General Jeff Sessions did not disclose on a security clearance form meetings he had as a senator past year with foreign dignitaries, including the Russian ambassador.

He said that "all options" were on the table to enforce the requests.

Since December, U.S. Intelligence officials said Moscow was behind hacking efforts to help Donald Trump win the presidential election.

"The information collected last summer was considered credible enough for intelligence agencies to pass to the FBI, which during that period opened a counterintelligence investigation that is continuing", according to the report.

He spoke vaguely about contacts between Trump associates and Russian officials, without giving names, saying they "raised questions in my mind about whether Russia was able to gain the cooperation of those individuals".

He described how Russian Federation recruits sources both 'wittingly and unwittingly'.

Nevertheless, he said, "It should be clear to everyone that Russian Federation interfered in our 2016 presidential election process".

Schiff also said House investigators want to examine any audio recordings kept by President Trump during private meetings in the White House.

Schiff, the ranking member on the House intelligence committee, said that Flynn had declined to come before the House panel or provide documents, citing his Fifth Amendment rights, as he had to subpoenas from the Senate intelligence committee.

Yet even as the public case for such an investigation continues to strengthen, revelations about Trump's apparent attempts to challenge the FBI's inquiry into these questions continue to roll in.

The leaders of the US Senate Intelligence Committee said on Tuesday they would subpoena two of Mr Flynn's businesses after he declined to hand over documents in its separate Russian Federation probe.

"So we need to take a look at some of the financial issues to try to determine whether the Russians used money to try to entangle USA persons, as a way of influencing their conduct", Schiff said. The two men also exchanged notes about their conversations with the president, the source said.

These revelations came from a highly classified report that was confirmed by three current and former US officials, all of whom claimed anonymity for fear of prosecution.

In late July of previous year there was so much concern that he convened a group of officials from the CIA, FBI and National Security Agency to focus on it exclusively.

Coats wouldn't discuss the matter when he appeared before the Senate on Tuesday.

Brennan cautioned lawmakers that although he could not definitively say if those contacts amounted to "collusion", he knew that Russians were actively cultivating United States contacts and, very likely, did not present themselves as Russian spies.

"The problem wasn't so much asking them to issue statements, it was asking them to issue false statements about an ongoing investigation", a former senior intelligence official told the Washington Post.

He said he was concerned over the number of contacts between Russian officials and Trump campaign operatives.

The panel will get two cracks at Brennan - the first in public at 10 a.m. ET and the second behind closed doors - nearly two months after his first appearance was dramatically canceled amid the chaos sparked by House intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes' clandestine White House trip.
