House Committee Releases Russia Report, NO COLLUSION — COLLUSION COLLAPSE

House Committee Releases Russia Report, NO COLLUSION — COLLUSION COLLAPSE

The report caps an investigation that began with the promise of bipartisanship but quickly transformed into an acrimonious battle between Democrats and Republicans over Russia's meddling in the 2016 election and whether there were any connections with the Trump campaign.

Separately, a Russian lawyer who attended the Trump Tower meeting, Natalia Veselnitskaya, said in an interview to be broadcast Friday with NBC News that she had Russian government ties, the New York Times reported.

"No collusion. Which I knew anyway". No coordination, no nothing.

"It's a witch hunt that's all it is".

The report found "no evidence" that Donald Trump's pre-campaign business dealings constituted collusion.

Lawmakers did criticize what they called "poor judgment and ill-considered actions" made by both the Trump and Clinton campaigns. The report also dubbed the campaign's praise of WikiLeaks "objectionable".

Intelligence committee ranking Democrat Rep. Adam Schiff of California has complained about the limitations on witness interviews, the avenues of investigation the committee didn't pursue, the subpoenas it couldn't issue and other restrictions that he said meant Republicans didn't lead a real process.

The report included significant redactions, so the committee may release more information as its members press the intelligence community (IC) for the redactions to be cleared.

California Democrat Adam Schiff said the panel did uncover evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation, despite Republicans saying otherwise.

President Donald Trump claimed House Republicans had cleared him and his campaign of Russian Federation collusion - but former Central Intelligence Agency director John Brennan warned him the worst was yet to come. They released a 98-page minority views document that pushes back on the Republican conclusions.

"I've also said that there's been nobody tougher on Russian Federation than me". Manafort has denied any wrongdoing.

Committee Democrats blasted the decision to end the investigation.

The Republican panel found "no evidence" Trump associates stole Clinton emails that got hacked during the campaign.

But they did find Russian Federation attempted to sway the election using cyberattacks and social media.

Glancing over at Merkel, Trump said: "There was no collusion with Russian Federation, if you could believe this one". Some portions of the public report are redacted for national security reasons. Republicans had already announced the main findings last month.

The committee's investigation was based on four topics: Russian active measures against the 2016 US election, the USA government's response to the attack.

Meanwhile, the Senate Intelligence Committee's investigation is moving ahead, along with special counsel Robert Mueller's probe.

Democrats on the committee didn't sign off on the report, which they said was incomplete and created to protect President Donald Trump.

The committee's sharp partisan divide was illustrated by the counter-memos issued in February regarding the anti-Trump dossier that was used by Federal Bureau of Investigation and Justice Department officials under President Obama to obtain a warrant to spy on a former Trump campaign volunteer.
