US House Democrats vow to continue Russian Federation probe, issue report

First son Donald Trump Jr. headed over to the Fox & Friends set Tuesday morning to take a victory lap on the House Intelligence Committee report drafted by Republicans that claims their investigation found that the Trump campaign didn't collude with Russian Federation. Moscow denies meddling in the 2016 USA campaign.

Conaway told reporters the Russians had tried to hurt Clinton, but it was a matter of interpretation.

"If the glass is half empty or the glass is half full, there's still the same amount of water in the glass", he continued.

Stefanik said the decision by the committee's Republican majority, announced Monday, simply means the committee is moving from a year-long investigative phase to one in that will make recommendations about how to prevent foreign interference in future USA elections - and she supports the continuing independent probe of Trump-Russian contacts being conducted by Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

Among those conclusions, Conaway said, will be an assertion that investigators "couldn't establish the same conclusion that the Central Intelligence Agency did that [the Russians] specifically wanted to help Trump". "We will be putting together a report that will set out for the country what evidence we have seen to date".

The announcement was met with a triumphant response from President Trump.

According to a one-page summary of the draft report, Republicans on the committee found "no evidence of collusion, coordination, or conspiracy between the Trump campaign and the Russians", and concurred with "the Intelligence Community Assessment's judgments, except with respect to Putin's supposed preference for candidate Trump".

Rep. Mike Conaway, a Republican on the committee, defended his party's report on Monday. Obama EPA chief: Reg rollback won't stand GOP lawmakers: Obama admin "hastily" wrote lead ammunition ban MORE (R-S.C.), who helped Conaway lead the probe, issued a statement claiming that "it is clear, based on the evidence, Russian Federation had disdain for Secretary Clinton and was motivated in whole or in part by a desire to harm her candidacy or undermine her Presidency had she prevailed". "So if Putin did things to hurt Hillary that helped Trump--ok. You can pitch that either way", he said.

Democrats received access to the document on Tuesday for review.

Broad concepts the Democrats feel haven't been adequately investigated, like what is still necessary in terms of election security U.S.in the future, as well as more specific lines of questioning like "Did President Trump seek to obstruct the FBI's investigation into Michael Flynn by pressuring FBI Director Comey to drop the investigation, by repeatedly requesting his loyalty, and by firing him?"
