House Intelligence Republicans Reportedly Find No Collusion Between Trump Campaign, Russia
Committee members say they found “no evidence of collusion, coordination, or conspiracy” between the Trump campaign and Russia.
Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee say they have completed interviews for their investigation into possible collusion between President Donald Trump’s campaign and Russians, and that they have found no evidence of such scheming, according to multiple reports.
“We have found no evidence of collusion, coordination, or conspiracy between the Trump campaign and the Russians,” they told reporters Monday.
The Republican members of the committee concluded that although Russian President Vladimir Putin’s government did take action to interfere in the election, it did not do so with the intention of aiding Trump. This contradicts earlier findings from U.S. intelligence agencies.
Democrats on the Republican-controlled committee will likely issue a competing report, CNN reported.
However, Rep. Mike Conaway (R-Texas), the lawmaker leading the committee’s probe, told reporters that the worst the investigation uncovered involved “perhaps some bad judgment, inappropriate meetings, inappropriate judgment at taking meetings.”
