WASHINGTON — The Senate Intelligence Committee is looking at the presidential campaign of the Green Party’s Jill Stein for potential collusion with Russians, a sign that the panel’s probe is far from over, even as allegations swirl that the House panel’s investigation is racing to a close.
Senator Richard Burr, Republican of North Carolina, said Monday the Senate committee has started looking into Stein’s campaign. Burr had indicated previously the committee is also looking into reports the Democratic National Committee paid for research that went into a dossier detailing allegations of Donald Trump’s exploits in Moscow.
Stein, a Lexington physician, was present at a 2015 dinner in Moscow that was also attended by Trump’s former national security adviser, Michael Flynn, whose contacts with Russian officials have been a chief focus of investigations. Flynn and Stein sat with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
