'No Trump-Russia collusion,' House committee says

House Intel Committee ending Russia interviews

House Intel Committee ending Russia interviews

Further, even though there was no collusion found, Nunes said his committee has been investigating Russian influence for some time, but as far as collusion, "if we find something new we'll open it back up".

On Monday, Congressman Mike Conaway said the committee found evidence of bad judgment, but no evidence of collusion.

"The House Intelligence Committee has, after 14-month-long in-depth investigation, found no evidence of collusion or coordination between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation to influence the 2016 presidential election", Trump tweeted Monday afternoon after the panel made the announcement.

"It was a very powerful decision, a very strong decision", Trump said as he headed to California to view prototypes for his proposed border wall along the U.S. -Mexico frontier.

Rep. Tom Rooney (R-Fla.), speaking with CNN, said there "is evidence" of Russia's preference for Trump to win the election over Hillary Clinton.

The full report will not be made publicly available until the panel's Democratic members are given the opportunity to review the findings and the intelligence community clears them for public release. Democrats are expected to issue a separate report with far different conclusions.

He added: "We disagree with the narrative that they were trying to help Trump".

Representative K. Michael Conaway of Texas, who is leading the investigation, said committee Republicans agreed with the conclusions of United States intelligence agencies that Russia had interfered with the election, but they broke with the agencies on one crucial point: that the Russians had favored Trump's candidacy.

Democrats have said the number of witnesses is closer to 60, and pointed out that the Senate Intelligence Committee, which is carrying out a parallel investigation, had interviewed more than one hundred witnesses as of October 2017. "They know that. That's a matter of public record". Conaway said there will be a second report just dealing with the intelligence assessment and its credibility.

Ultimately, Monday's announcement by intelligence committee Republicans set the stage for the partisan outcome that has long appeared in store for the committee's Russian Federation probe: a majority Republican report and a minority Democratic one that reach different conclusions.

An overview said the Republican findings include that Russian Federation committed cyberattacks on USA political institutions in 2015 and 2016, and attempted to sow discord on social media. It will include at least 25 recommendations, including how to improve election security, respond to cyberattacks and improve counterintelligence efforts.

Democrats have reacted sharply to the remarks. That's part of the core of our investigation to see if that was going on. "History will judge its actions harshly".

"Clearly the dossier would have hurt him and helped her", Conaway said.

In a statement, Gowdy said it was "clear, based on the evidence, Russian Federation had disdain for Secretary Clinton and was motivated in whole or in part by a desire to harm her candidacy or undermine her Presidency had she prevailed". Despite a promise of dirt on Clinton ahead of the meeting, there's no evidence that such material was exchanged, he said. The committee will now redirect efforts to investigate these issues, according to a preliminary summary of the report. He has already indicted several former top Trump aides, as he develops evidence of extensive contacts between the campaign and Russian Federation. It's unclear if the Judiciary panel will produce a final report.

The investigation of special counsel Robert Mueller, appointed by the US Department of Justice to look into the same alleged collusion, remains ongoing. It has already resulted in charges against several people linked to Trump's campaign.
