Former CIA director worried Russia tried to recruit Americans

WASHINGTON - Former CIA Director John Brennan said on Monday there was enough contact between Americans and Russian officials during the 2016 US election that there was definitely grounds for an investigation into possible collusion with Moscow, and also concern about Russian efforts to recruit Americans.
"I had unresolved questions in my mind about whether or not the Russians had been successful in getting US persons, involved in the campaign or not, to work on their behalf," Brennan testified to the US House of Representatives Intelligence Committee.
Brennan declined to provide any indication about the identity of those people.
