The White House said it will brief Democratic politicians on reports that Russia paid Taliban fighters to target American troops in Afghanistan.
Democrats were left out of an intelligence briefing on Monday. Those briefings often involve both parties.
The Kremlin and the White House are denying the reports.
US President Donald Trump said he was never briefed on the alleged programme.
