The Senate Intelligence Committee has “made multiple criminal referrals” to special counsel Robert Mueller in the Trump-Russia investigation, reports NBC News.
The report says that Sen. Mark Warner (D-VA) disclosed the news on Thursday, but added, “we’re not going to talk about any individuals.”
The Senate committee has been investigating Russia’s interference in the 2016 election and that they are now “combing through witness testimony for possible misleading or untruthful statements.”
The news on the referrals is also sourced to Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) who said the committee “made referrals where appropriate.”
“I am very glad the special counsel is pursuing those who mislead members of congress,” she said.
Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) says that Donald Trump Jr. might be in trouble for lying to the committee.
“My impression from watching Donald Trump Jr. in that meeting is that he evaded and contradicted himself in many of his answers,” Blumenthal said on the day the transcript was released. “I have no confidence that he has told the whole truth.”
