House Intel Committee, "President Trump Did Not Collude with Russia"

Republicans Investigating Russia Tell Fox They Found No Collusion – Even Though Probe Still Ongoing

"We found perhaps some bad judgment, inappropriate meetings", Michael Conaway, a Texas Republican, who led the investigation, told reporters in a Monday briefing, reported by United States media.

They said they concurred with the judgment of U.S. spy chiefs from January 2017 on the Russian interference, except with respect to President Vladimir Putin´s alleged preference for candidate Trump.

The final 150-page report was compiled by Republicans, and will be submitted to Democrats for comment and review. However, they disputed the findings of the Central Intelligence Agency, National Security Agency and Federal Bureau of Investigation that Moscow sought to aid Trump, who won a surprise victory over Democrat Hillary Clinton.

"After more than a year, the Committee has finished its Russian Federation investigation and will now work on completing our report", Nunes said in a statement. He declined to put a timeline on when the report would be made public, as the committee intends to submit it to the intelligence community for declassification beforehand. Democrats have accused Republicans of essentially blocking their path to the truth to protect Mr. Trump. Republicans and Democrats have both described that probe as far less partisan than the House committee's. Special counsel Robert Mueller's independent probe, meanwhile, continues to expand.

"Why would you end the investigation now?" Among the witnesses who refused to answer crucial questions: Donald Trump Jr., Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Trump Organization attorney Michael Cohen, former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski, and former White House communications director Hope Hicks.

Mueller has also indicted 13 Russian individuals and three companies for operating a disinformation and identity theft effort meant to undermine the election.

Rooney also said he saw classified evidence Russian Federation had damaging information on Hillary Clinton, but planned to withhold it until after the election because they expected her to win.

In response, Trump tweeted that the investigation "found no evidence of collusion or coordination between the Trump Campaign and Russian Federation", though the full committee has not yet announced its findings.

A separate investigation being taken up in the Senate is also continuing its inquiry, and shortly before the House panel released its findings, Senator Chris Coons said the Senate Intelligence Committee "continues to make solid progress" while ripping its House counterpart.

Schiff said the committee's investigation was not complete, but evidence so far had been "clear and overwhelming" that Russian Federation sought to boost Trump, hurt his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton, and sow discord during the election.

It also appears that Conaway ended the investigation without ever convening a meeting with Schiff and Senators Mark Warner (D-Va.) and Richard Burr (R-N.C.), who head up the Senate panel looking into Russian interference.

"That meeting should never have taken place", Conaway said.

File the Nunes Committee report and the Trump tweet under "LOL".

Conaway defended the House committee's decision to end their probe, telling Fox News that Coons' assessment is "uninformed at best".

He made no immediate mention of the Democrats' objection.
