Sen. Richard Burr (R-N.C.), the chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, said earlier this month the panel has not found evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Moscow in 2016.


In the last week, several news organizations have reported that Mueller could file his report on his investigation with the Department of Justice as early as next week.

Mueller’s investigation has long drawn Trump’s ire. The president declared in November that his personal legal team would compile a “major Counter Report” to Mueller’s findings.
