It was a huge relief for President Trump as the House Intelligence Committee is shutting down its contentious investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.
The committee will interview no more witnesses and Republicans are in the process of preparing their final report, Rep. Mike Conaway told reporters. A draft of that roughly 150-page report will be delivered to committee Democrats for review on Tuesday.
The draft document asserts that there is no evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russians, the most politically charged question examined by the committee. It will also contradict an official U.S. intelligence community assessment that Russian President Vladimir Putin showed a “preference” for Donald Trump during the race — another assertion that Trump has disputed.
