"We've got a tremendous amount of documents still to go through". He did not elaborate, except to say that the committee had not come to any conclusions and that the investigation is ongoing.
While Burr sidestepped questions about whether the Russians were trying to help Trump, one of the conclusions the intelligence community found, he warned that the efforts to interfere are still ongoing and must be addressed ahead of the next round of U.S. elections later this year and in 2018.

"The committee can not really decide the credibility of the dossier without understanding things like who paid for it, who are your sources and sub-sources", Burr added.
