No proof of Trump-Russia collusion - US Republicans

No proof of Trump-Russia collusion - US Republicans

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.

It would seem that the Congressional GOP's announcement about the end of the House Intelligence Committee's Russian Federation probe is not a consensus among Republicans on the investigative body.

But, Conway added in a glaring denial of extensive USA intelligence findings, "We disagree with the narrative that they were trying to help Trump".

The Democrats are expected to argue that the investigation ended prematurely and that they have different conclusions. They say there are still people the committee needs to call to testify and claim the Republicans on the committee haven't effectively used their authority to get all pertinent information.

On Monday, Schiff excoriated House Republicans for ending the panel's probe before Mueller's team or the other congressional panels looking at Russian interference have finished their work.

"We are confident that we have thoroughly investigated the agreed-upon parameters, and developed reliable initial findings and recommendations", Conaway said.

The House's decision to end the investigation left only one committee to continue it in Congress.

During the fracas news even surfaced that the panel was considering building a physical wall in the committee's office to separate GOP and Democratic aides.

Schiff and the panel's other Democrats charged that Republicans seemed rushed to close the probe to give Trump and his allies more ammunition to question the extent of Russian involvement in the election and close off avenues of inquiry about whether they had American help.

The Republicans' initial report on Monday affirmed that those active measures have been taking place but said there was no evidence Trump played any role in them and, in a departure with the USA intelligence community, Republicans disputed that they were meant to help Trump win. He said that the report would likely not be released to the public before April.

"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". Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) released a statement saying "the Majority has placed the interests of protecting the president over protecting the country, and history will judge its actions harshly".

Conaway said he hopes that Democrats can work with Republicans on the draft report, and he wants to take their feedback as they shape the final report.

Stewart says even though they are closing the investigation, if they do learn something more, they will pursue it.

Conaway said he saw no "link" between Trump's finances and the committee's investigation, and he did not want to go on a fishing expedition.

Conaway previewed some of the conclusions, but said the public will not see the report until Democrats have reviewed it and the intelligence community has decided what information can become public, a process that could take weeks.

This outcome was completely predictable from the outset, when the committee's chairman, Devin Nunes, snuck off to the White House late at night to produce an explosive but eventually debunked charge that Trump had been the victim of nefarious "unmasking" by Obama officials in 2016. I'd like to thank Congressmen Trey Gowdy, Tom Rooney, and especially Mike Conaway for the excellent job they've done leading this investigation.
