Trump celebrates GOP intelligence report with all-caps tweet

Trump celebrates GOP intelligence report with all-caps tweet

The report also noted that based on its investigation which lasted more than a year, the committee disagreed with the intelligence community's assessment that Russian President Vladimir Putin had a "supposed preference" for then-candidate Donald Trump. The committee has been unable to access a slew of central figures who have either been indicted or pleaded guilty in the course of Mueller's probe.

The worst things they found were "perhaps some bad judgement, inappropriate meetings, inappropriate judgment at taking meetings", Conaway, who has led the probe, told reporters on Monday.

The House investigation, one of three main congressional probes of Russian Federation and the 2016 investigation, and possible collusion or obstruction of justice by Trump or his aides, has been marred for months by partisan wrangling, including the release of rival Republican and Democratic memos related to the probe.

"That meeting should never have taken place", Conaway said.

The GOP also deviated from the intelligence community's assessment past year that Russian President Vladimir Putin preferred Donald Trump over other candidates. 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.

Committee Democrats fiercely oppose the decision to end the interview phase, insisting there are many more witnesses who need to be heard.

The Democrats argue that the committee should call back some witnesses, including Donald Trump Jr. and Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

The committee Republicans said they agreed that Russian Federation sought to influence the election by spreading propaganda and false news reports via social media.

Democrats and Republicans on the committee have interviewed the same 73 witnesses and viewed the same 300,000-plus documents, according to a tally Republicans released Monday.

In addition to subpoenas and witnesses, Democrats have long raised issues about looking into Trump's finances, something the committee had not probed.

But he added: "We found no evidence that the Trump campaign or anyone associated with it colluded with the Russians".

Chairman Devin Nunes announced on Monday the committee would now begin writing its final report.

Republicans are expected to assert that collusion did not occur, according to CNN. He said he had "no contact" with the White House during the probe.

The bottom line, he said, is that the Russians "did commit active measures against our election in '16, and we think they will do that in the future".

But parallel investigations in two Senate committees into alleged collusion between Russian Federation and the Trump camp continued apace, as did an inquiry led by the special counsel Robert Mueller.

In addition to the investigations by the House and Senate intelligence committees, the Senate Judiciary Committee has conducted a more limited probe and is not expected to issue a final report. He said the committee was preparing a separate, in-depth analysis of the intelligence community's assessment.

The move comes before Democrats have a chance to seize control of the House in the 2018 midterm elections.
