GOP-led House panel clears Trump campaign in Russian Federation probe

No Evidence of Collusion Between Russia and Trump Campaign

"While the committee found no evidence that the Trump campaign colluded, coordinated or conspired with the Russian government, the investigation did find poor judgment and ill-considered actions by the Trump and Clinton campaigns", the report, written by House Republicans, states.

"It was a great report - no collusion which I knew anyway, no coordination, no nothing".

Trump - who habitually blasts the Mueller probe as a "witch hunt - took the House report as vindication".

The House panel final report, which Republicans said was based on interviews with 73 witnesses and a review of over 300,000 documents, came out with little surprise since Republicans on the committee in March issued a one-page summary of their findings making clear that no evidence of collusion had been found during the investigation.

The GOP House Intelligence Committee has released its findings on the Russian Federation probe.

Mueller's probe is continuing, as are investigations by the Senate Intelligence and Judiciary Committees.

"The committee also found the Trump campaign's periodic praise for and communications with WikiLeaks - a hostile foreign organization - to be highly objectionable and inconsistent with USA national security interests." the report went on.

The report, however, does confirm Russian nationals did carry out a campaign to incite fear and division among Americans during the election, and claims the Obama administration's response to Russian interference was "ineffective".

The committee's investigation began with bipartisanship but ultimately succumbed to factional squabbling.

"I am extremely disappointed with the overzealous redactions made by the IC", Conaway said in a statement, adding that he plans to challenge the IC's redactions "with the hopes of releasing more of the report in the coming months". But the probe did provide important public revelations. Rep. Mike Conaway, R-Texas, meanwhile called on intelligence officials to clear the committee to release more information from the report that was deemed classified.

Note 16.02.2018 US have charged a 13 citizens of Russian Federation against intervention in the elections of the President of the United States.

The former chair of the Trump campaign has also been indicted as well as his deputy.

At the start of 2018, Nunes and the committee's Republican staff crafted a memo revealing details of the FBI's surveillance of former Trump campaign aide Carter Page.

The panel wrote that intelligence officials should immediately alert presidential candidates and Congress when they discover "legitimate" threats to a campaign.

Additionally, the committee recommended the executive branch "crack down" on leaks by conducting polygraphs of certain employees with top secret clearances.

"While the committee found that several of the contacts between Trump associates and Russians - or their proxies, including Wikileaks - were ill-advised, the committee did not determine that Trump or anyone associated with him assisted Russia's active measures campaign", the report says.
