House Intel Republicans, Citing No Evidence of Collusion, End Russia Probe

Speaking with reporters, the leader of the investigation, Representative K. Michael Conaway of Texas, stated that Republican members of the committee do not believe that the Trump campaign colluded with Russian Federation. The Republican leading the committee's work, Michael Conaway - he's from Texas - says that they found inappropriate meetings, they found bad judgment, but nothing beyond that.

The House investigation was marked by partisan acrimony from the beginning, coming to a head when Republicans on the panel pushed to release their own rundown of events regarding one part of the Russian Federation investigation, as Democrats then released a rebuttal memo to counter the information in that GOP document.

The draft report includes 25 recommendations for Congress relating to election and cyber security.

Schiff, the committee's top Democrat, said on Sunday that the committee, which is not widely regarded as being at the spearhead of the investigation into Russian Federation and Trump, had uncovered "circumstantial evidence of collusion".

Conaway stated that those conducting the investigation, launched in January a year ago, spoke to 73 witnesses, many at the heart of the Republican campaign, including Donald Trump Jr., Jared Kushner and Steve Bannon, and reviewed over 300,000 documents.

Trump has repeatedly denied collusion between his associates and Russian Federation. If the Russians do have leverage over the President of the United States, the Majority has simply decided it would rather not know.

The report has not been shared with the Democrats on the committee, who have complained that the GOP members have rushed to end the investigation and lacked input on the report. Nunes continued to churn out explosive but false counter-charges depicting the Russian Federation investigation as a Deep State conspiracy against the completely innocent Trump campaign.

"To me, I don't see anything else that's out there that hasn't been explored", Rep. Pete King, a New York Republican, told CNN last week.

In his statement Monday, Schiff said that the intelligence community assessment is a "fundamental aspect" of the panel's probe that both Republicans and Democrats "should have been able to issue a common report" on.

"We have learned a great deal about countless secret meetings, conversations and communications between Trump campaign officials and the Russians, all of which the Trump Administration initially denied", he added.

Democrats weren't impressed, referring to the #GOP findings as a smokescreen. On those issues, the evidence is clear and overwhelming that the Intelligence Community Assessment was correct.

SHAPIRO: And as you said, this House Intelligence Committee has become so partisan and politicized. After the report goes through the minority staff, it will be released to the public after declassification. Now, Special Counsel Mueller is continuing his investigation.

The committee has been crippled by partisan division for months, as Republican members accused Democrats of trying to malign Trump without adequate evidence and Democrats accused them of trying to undermine Mueller's investigation.
