'No Collusion': US House GOP Exonerates Trump Campaign

'No Collusion': US House GOP Exonerates Trump Campaign

President Donald Trump's 2016 campaign did not collude, coordinate or conspire with elements of the Russian government in an effort to defeat Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, according to a report made public Friday by the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence.

After more than a year, the committee released its final report on its investigation into alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election.

The House panel did find that Russian Federation sought to sow discord in the USA through cyberattacks and social media. A total Witch Hunt.

The committee's Republicans didn't let the Trump campaign completely off the hook.

It criticised a meeting at Trump Tower in NY in June 2016 between a Kremlin-linked lawyer and three of Trump's top aides - his son Donald Jr; his son-in-law, Jared Kushner; and his campaign chairman, Paul Manafort - after Trump Jr had been told a Russian government lawyer had incriminating information on Clinton.

A 14-month investigation into alleged Russian meddling in USA affairs by the House Intelligence Committee is wrapping up.

The report's conclusion is being opposed by Democrats, who say the committee did not do enough to support its finding.

Rep. Mark Meadows, R-N.C., the chairman of the conservative House Freedom Caucus, said the Republican-authored report confirms that from "day one, the "Russian collusion" investigation into the Trump campaign was an empty case". It also said both the Trump and Clinton campaigns had exercised poor judgment considering Russia's role.

It also heaped blame on America's intelligence community for "tradecraft failings that undermine confidence in" it for its determination in attempting to show that the effort was aimed at helping President Donald Trump secure the Oval Office.

But the committee's ranking Democrat, Adam Schiff of California, told reporters that the report exemplified "the [Republican] majority's fundamentally flawed approach to the investigation and the superficial and political nature of its conclusions".

In February, a United States federal jury charged 13 Russian nationals and three Russian companies as part of an investigation into alleged interference in the 2016 presidential elections.

Meanwhile, Mueller's team and the Senate Intelligence Committee continue to investigate possible coordination between the Kremlin and Trump's campaign.

Intelligence experts have concluded Russian Federation did it to help Trump win.

The process began with the so-called "midnight run" in March 2017 when Nunes went to the White House complex at night to view classified information he later suggested revealed wrongdoing by the Obama administration. Instead he launched a pair of investigations on his own, taking aim at the Justice Department and FBI. Trump wrote on Twitter.

The House panel is expected to challenge those revisions in hopes of getting more of the report declassified. The panel also recommended the executive branch "crack down" on leaks by conducting polygraphs of all for limited certain employees with top secret clearances.
