No Evidence of Collusion Between Russia and Trump Campaign

No Evidence of Collusion Between Russia and Trump Campaign

The report largely confirms the findings of US intelligence agencies that Russian Federation was assessed to be responsible for cyberattacks on USA political institutions, including the hack of the Democratic National Committee's emails.

Trump quickly claimed vindication Friday, calling the report "totally conclusive, strong, powerful, many things".

It also accused former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper of having "provided inconsistent testimony to the Committee about his contacts with media", specifically pointing to inconsistencies in Clapper's testimonies regarding whether he discussed the controversial dossier with reporters.

The Intelligence Committee officially closed its investigation, saying in its final report that it found no evidence that the Trump campaign colluded with Moscow during the 2016 presidential election. Schiff cited several "secret meetings and communication" between people linked to Russian Federation and Trump campaign officials including former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn and Trump Jr.

Panel Democrats fiercely opposed the conclusion, arguing that the committee did not interview enough witnesses or gather enough evidence to support its finding.

Expectedly, Democrats dissented, accusing the Republican-majority committee of intentionally steering the investigation away from scrutiny of the president, refusing to issue subpoenas, and generally undermining the integrity of the probe with partisan outlook.

"Just Out: House Intelligence Committee Report released".

The Republican House Intelligence Committee report references that infamous Trump Tower meeting in June of 2016 but says investigators "did not ultimately obtain" the information they sought.

After the report was released, he wrote on Twitter: "House Intelligence Committee Report released". But the probe did provide important public revelations.

Trump said no one has been as tough as him as the Russians.

The former chair of the Trump campaign has also been indicted as well as his deputy.

"The committee also found the Trump campaign's periodic praise for and communications with WikiLeaks - a hostile foreign organization - to be highly objectionable and inconsistent with US national security interests." the report went on. Instead he launched a pair of investigations on his own, taking aim at the Justice Department and FBI.

The committee urged intelligence officials to immediately alert presidential candidates when they discover "legitimate" threats to the campaign. The panel also recommended the executive branch "crack down" on leaks by conducting polygraphs.
