House Intelligence Committee Concludes: No Collusion

U.S. Representative Adam Schiff speaks to reporters before a meeting of the House Intelligence Committee at the U.S. Capitol in Washi

"We've found no evidence of collusion", Conaway told reporters Monday (Tuesday NZT). "We found no evidence of any collusion of anything people were actually doing, other than taking a meeting they shouldn't have taken or just inadvertently being in the same building".

And it increases pressure on the collegial Senate Intelligence Committee to come out with a credible bipartisan report from its own Russian Federation probe. One of those, in the Judiciary Committee, also seems to be close to wrapping up.

The committee's draft report also says that Russian Federation did try to interfere in the 2016 election, but didn't do so to help then-candidate Donald Trump.

The GOP findings are being released without Democratic input.

Not afraid to weigh in on social media on USA political battles, the Russian Embassy in Washington, D.C. gave the thumbs up to the quotes of Rep. Mike Conaway (R-TX), who headed the House Intelligence Committee investigation into Russian interference. Among the witnesses who refused to answer crucial questions: Donald Trump Jr., Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Trump Organization attorney Michael Cohen, former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski, and former White House communications director Hope Hicks. During the interview, the representative said the committee reviewed 300,000 documents and conducted 73 interviews to answer the four questions which the committee sought to answer. Intelligence agencies will also have to review the document and clear information in it for release.

It's widely expected Democrats will draft their own report that argues a case for collusion, as well as spells out all the avenues the committee did not investigate.

Nunes issued a statement thanking Conaway, Rooney and Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) for their work on the investigation.

Toys 'R' Us prepares to liquidate operations
Numbers are also declining for other American toy companies, with Hasbro (3 percent) and Mattel (5 percent) seeing stocks drop. Toys R Us is reportedly preparing to liquidate its assets, and it could shutter all of its USA stores as early as Monday .

Despite Trump's constant denial that he ever had anything to do with the reported hacking, several well-respected news sources and government agencies have stood by their reporting of Russian Federation hacking into the election with the goal of electing Trump.

Trump has repeatedly denied collusion between Russian Federation and his campaign, while Russian Federation has repeatedly denied meddling in the election. The House Intelligence Committee is done interviewing witnesses in the Russian Federation investigation.

Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., suggested that by wrapping up the probe the Republicans were protecting Trump. He says it's time to reveal what they have found, and move on.

President Donald Trump, despite the fact that the Committee's report is supported by not a single Democrat and even some Republicans oppose its findings. "I think that their goal was chaos".

Trump and his advisers have denied from the first they had any role in what intelligence officers call the "active measures" that Russian Federation has been waging against the United States for years.

It will include at least 25 recommendations, including how to improve election security, respond to cyberattacks and improve counterintelligence efforts.
