Senate Intel Panel Looking At Jill Stein Campaign In Russia Probe

Looks like another 2016 presidential candidate has been ensnared in the Russian Federation probe's nets. Green Party's Jill Stein was contacted by the Senate Intelligence Committee asking her to "comply with a document search", Buzzfeed News reported Tuesday.

The Buzzfeed article focuses on Dennis Trainor Jr., "who served as the campaign's communications director and acting manager", and "told BuzzFeed News that he was informed of the committee's request because during his time on the campaign, his personal cell phone was "a primary point of contact" for those looking to reach Stein or the campaign".

Trainor speculated he was named because of his correspondence with producers for Russia Today, a news agency funded by the Russian government that the U.S. Intelligence Community recently designated as "a propaganda outlet".

"Then I was told by Jill just to wait for further instructions", he said.

Stein did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

At a 2015 Moscow dinner hosted by RT, Stein sat at the same table as Russian President Vladimir Putin and former White House national security advisor Michael Flynn.

She issued a statement to The Washington Post Monday afternoon.

In a series of Tweets, Loop stated Burr said,"I think it's safe to say that we've got two other campaigns that we're just starting on", adding that Stein's campaign is under scrutiny. She added she was not asked to testify before Congress, but would be "happy to do so" if the subject was brought up. Stein was the Green Party's nominee for the president of the United States in 2012 and 2016.

The Senate Intelligence Committee has asked the Jill Stein campaign to turn over documents for the committee's Russian Federation probe, committee Chair Richard Burr (R-NC) confirmed to reporters on Monday.
