The House intelligence Committee shuts down the Trump-Russia investigation After 14 Months
The House Intelligence Committee is shutting down its contentious investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.
The committee will interview no more witnesses and Republicans are in the process of preparing their final report, Rep. Mike Conaway told reporters. A draft of that roughly 150-page report will be delivered to committee Democrats for review on Tuesday.
The president also confirms it on his Twitter saying:
We found no evidence of collusion,” Conaway said Monday. “We found perhaps some bad judgment, inappropriate meetings, inappropriate judgment in taking meetings — but only Tom Clancy could take this series of inadvertent contacts, meetings, whatever, and weave that into some sort of a spy thriller that could go out there.”
Further, he said, “we couldn’t establish the same conclusion that the CIA did that [the Russians] specifically wanted to help Trump.”
