Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee have concluded their own Russia probe.
House Intelligence Committee Conclusions (Remember, Republicans are in the majority):
- Russia did not favor any particular candidate for President. * This conclusion does not align with conclusions publicly released by U.S. intelligence agencies. In a memo, the CIA declared that Russia favored Trump over Clinton.
- No evidence exists that the Trump campaign in colluded with Russia. On June 9, 2016, Donald Trump Jr. knowingly and intentionally met with 'Russian government attorney' Natalia Veselnitskaya for the purpose of receiving 'dirt' on Hillary Clinton.*
Even as the special counsel expands his inquiry and pursues criminal charges against at least four Trump associates, House Intelligence Committee Republicans said Monday they have found no evidence of collusion between Donald J. Trump’s presidential campaign and Russia to sway the 2016 election
The bottom line: The Russians did commit active measures against our election in ’16, and we think they will do that in the future,” Mr. Conaway said. But, he added, “We disagree with the narrative that they were trying to help Trump.”
