Evening newscasts barely mention House Intel findings of 'no evidence of collusion'

"Many of us could see that Donald Trump was going to be a very poor president". "But I also believe there's evidence to where they were trying to wreak havoc on both sides".

Expect Donald Trump to regularly cite the coming full report from the committee's Republican majority as exoneration, particularly its controversial conclusion that Russian efforts to disrupt the 2016 election were not specifically aimed at helping Mr Trump.

His fellow Republicans on the committee closed the investigation Monday with no evidence the Trump campaign colluded with Russian Federation to sway the 2016 election.

Exit quote: "House Republicans have abandoned their oath to support and defend the Constitution and protect the American people", lamented House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA).

But the news that majority party staffers had already drafted a final report so quickly was likely to stun committee Democrats who expected to be consulted in the process.

"Multiple Americans and Russians have been indicted or pled guilty in the Trump-Russia scandal", Pelosi said. "And the Republicans will have to answer why they're not interested in finding out..."

On Monday night the House Intelligence Committee said they will release a 150-page report of their findings to committee Democrats on Tuesday.

"It's obvious and yet they claim in this report made for talk radio that that wasn't the case", he continued, claiming that House Republicans "are happy to ignore" Trump's Central Intelligence Agency director. "We've seen some, perhaps, meetings that were inappropriate or ill-advised to have taken".

GOP members on the committee also disputed a key finding from the intelligence community that Russian Federation had developed a preference for president Donald Trump during the election.

Democrats have said the number of witnesses is closer to 60, and pointed out that the Senate Intelligence Committee, which is carrying out a parallel investigation, had interviewed more than one hundred witnesses as of October 2017.

Russians used cyberattacks and social media to sow discord in the U.S.

Committee chair Devin Nunes said on Monday that the panel has ended its investigation.

Democrats have criticized Republicans on the committee for shortening the investigation, pointing to multiple contacts between Trump's campaign and Russian Federation and saying they have seen far too few witnesses to make any judgment on collusion.

"The [Republican] majority has placed the interests of protecting the President over protecting the country, and history will judge its actions harshly", he said.

"I think there were efforts to try to hurt Hillary and help Trump, but I think there was also the opposite too", Rooney said.

Democrats on the polarized committee immediately objected to the findings, saying there were signs of collusion and that they still had numerous witnesses to interview.

The committee pursued four avenues of inquiry: active measures taken by Russia to interfere in the 2016 election, the government's response to the interference, ties between the Russians and the Clinton and Trump campaigns, and alleged leaks of classified information.
