House Republicans reach opposite conclusion from intelligence community

Despite Mueller's Push, House Republicans Declare No Evidence of Collusion

One of the 3 big Russia investigations sounds like it's about to wrap up

CNN reported, citing an unnamed source familiar with the matter, that Rep. Mike Conaway (R-TX), who is leading the panel's Russian Federation probe, is expected to announce Monday that the committee has finished its interviews in the probe and will begin to craft a report on its findings.

"We found none", Mr Conaway said in an interview on Fox News Channel.

Republicans said they agreed with the US intelligence community's January report that Russia tried to interfere in the USA presidential election, but did not agree that the Russians were trying to help Donald Trump defeat Democrat Hillary Clinton. The Senate panel is expected to issue findings on the more controversial issue of coordination between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation at a later date. They included key figures like Donald Trump Jr., Jared Kushner and Steve Bannon, but Democrats have argued that those witnesses failed to fully provide documents or answer important questions.

Committee Democrats have also clamored for the panel to issue several subpoenas for witnesses who either have ignored the committee's requests to appear or given incomplete answers during their interviews with the panel. "With the 2018 primary elections already underway and just 238 days until the mid-term elections in November, it's important that we give the American people the information they need to arm themselves against Russian attempts to influence our elections".

Conaway said Democrats will agree with some elements of the report, such as the social media interference, but he acknowledged they'd take issue with others.

The committee's traditional bipartisanship began unraveling in the spring of previous year, when Chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., took a secret trip to White House grounds to review information gathered by unnamed sources purporting to show that President Trump was under surveillance by the Obama administration during the 2016 campaign.

He also said there was no evidence that anything "untoward" happened at a 2016 meeting between members of the Trump campaign and Russians, though he called it ill-advised. Tom Rooney of Florida and Peter King of NY, began signaling in recent weeks that they were anxious to wrap things up, saying they had explored all the key evidence.

Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, a Republican released a controversial memo that alleged misconduct at the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Justice Department with regard to obtaining a FISA surveillance warrant in order to surveil the communications of a former Trump associate.

But Democrats say the committee has raced through its final interviews, while allowing witnesses to pick and choose which questions they answer.

The report is also expected to turn the subject of collusion toward the Clinton campaign, saying an anti-Trump dossier compiled by a former British spy and paid for by Democrats was one way that Russians tried to influence the election.

There are still two committees in the Senate that are investigating Russia's 2016 election meddling: the Senate Intelligence and Judiciary Committees.

The Senate Intelligence Committee is preparing to put out recommendations and hold a hearing on election security this month.
