Stefanik releases statement on ending House investigation

US President Donald Trump has long denied he colluded with Russia to help him win the 2016 US election

President Donald Trump's campaign and Russian Federation did not collude during the 2016 presidential election, the House Intelligence Committee's Republicans said in a draft assessment of Russia's alleged efforts to steer the USA poll.

"Perhaps some bad judgment, inappropriate meetings, inappropriate judgment at taking meetings" have happened, Conaway said, such as a June 2016 gathering at Trump Tower in New York City between members of the Trump campaign and a Russian lawyer, which "shouldn't have happened".

A Republican member of the House Intelligence Committee condemned his GOP colleagues for shuttering its Russian Federation investigation, saying the panel has "lost all credibility". Mueller has indicted 13 Russian nationals and four Trump campaign associates to date.

"I've read a lot about it, but I haven't seen any" evidence of collusion, Burr said. He even cast doubt on the intelligence community's unanimous assessment that Russian Federation intervened in the election with the express intent of helping elect Donald Trump.

The Senate Intelligence Committee's probe is still ongoing and its first product, a report on election security, is expected to be released in the coming weeks.

Lawmakers had been telegraphing that last week's committee interview with former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski was likely to be the last of dozens conducted since the committee launched its Russian Federation probe last March.

Mr Trump, though, declared in an all upper-case tweet that the committee "found no evidence of collusion or co-ordination" between his presidential campaign and Russian Federation, a claim he has made since the first allegations were made in late 2016.

DNI spokesman Brian Hale said the office will review the findings of the committee's report.

In order to keep some pressure off the shoulders of Sexton, Hall, Ingram and John Petty must step up to hit a few key shots. Hightower played a big role in Georgia's victory over Vanderbilt on Wednesday night, when he scored 13 and had six assists.

"Yeah, well, look they try to rewrite history", Nunes said of Schiff's complaints. At least he will not be in a position to interfere with real investigative efforts underway in the Senate and by the special counsel.

"The Republicans' decision to shut down the House Intelligence Committee's Russian Federation investigation sends a bright green light to Russian Federation to continue its interference at America's ballot boxes".

"Ranking committee member Adam Schiff, D-Calif., excoriated his Republican colleagues for their "capitulation" to the executive branch" on Monday, and said his party will continue to investigate.

The announcement brought to an abrupt end to one of two remaining investigations into the topic on Capitol Hill and quickly provoked sharp objections from committee Democrats, who have warned Republicans not to close the matter before the special counsel, Robert Mueller, is done with his work.

He has also said the committee had obtained only incomplete and, in some cases, potentially incorrect testimony from a spate of other witnesses, including Donald Trump, Jr., Attorney General Jeff Sessions, former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon, former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski, outgoing White House communications director Hope Hicks and Trump associate and Blackwater founder Erik Prince.

Democrats eventually wrote and released their own countermemo, drawn from the same underlying material, to rebut the Republican document.

"I felt like the administration should know about that because I have a constitutional duty to make sure that people that are being abused the intelligence agencies know about it".
