House Republicans release Russian Federation report that Democrats claim is a whitewash

House Republicans release Russian Federation report that Democrats claim is a whitewash

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) (left) and Rep. Peter King (R-N.Y.) head for a House Republican conference meeting on February 6 at the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C. On Friday, the Committee released its report on Russian interference in the 2016 election.

The Republican report said investigators "found no evidence that the Trump campaign colluded, coordinated or conspired with the Russian government".

Former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn met with the Russian ambassador to the U.S.in December 2015, months after Flynn first met then-presidential candidate Donald Trump, according to a Republican congressional report.

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.

Along with alleged links between the Russian government and the Trump and Clinton campaigns, the investigation examined Russian interference in the 2016 USA election, the US government's response to the meddling, and leaks of classified information.

The report reconfirms many aspects of those active measures, which included overtures by human intelligence operatives to Americans, including Trump aides; cyberattacks on state election systems; and the theft and release of Americans' emails as part of a scheme to embarrass them. Republicans announced the main findings last month, concluding there was no coordination between Donald Trump's presidential campaign and Russian Federation. "MUST END NOW!" Trump tweeted.

Democrats on the House Intelligence panel blasted the GOP report, calling the findings "misleading" and politically motivated.

The news agency supposes that the Democrats will probably criticize the Committee's conclusions. One day later, the committee's chairman, Devin Nunes, took a clandestine trip to the White House grounds to review classified information that quickly drew scrutiny after he publicly disclosed that Trump associates' communications had been swept up by US spy agencies and accused Obama administration officials of misconduct. Sure, they talked to more than 70 people, including former Campaign Manager Corey Lewandoski, Keebler fascist Jeff Sessions, swamp thing Steve Bannon, and boy wonder Jared Kushner, but they didn't speak to people who-yannow-were charged with crimes by the special counsel investigating Russian interference into the 2016 campaign.

Kavanagh said some districts might want to use the lion's share of their dollars to sharply bump up the salaries of new teachers. Tens of thousands of teachers are expected to walk out and march in downtown Phoenix , from Chase Field to the state Capitol.


Trump praised the document on Twitter soon after it was released, highlighting the Clinton mention and lobbing an attack at other ongoing investigations of potential collusion with Russian Federation. "On December 29, 2016, President Obama 'authorized a number of actions" - including new sanctions - 'in response to the Russian government's aggressive harassment of USA officials and cyber operations aimed at the US election in 2016'".

The report said, "Continued leaks of classified information have damaged national security and potentially endangered lives". Those claims were bolstered Friday when, on the same day Republicans' report was published, the Russian lawyer at that Trump Tower meeting told the New York Times she is an "informant" for the Kremlin - suggesting her ties to the Russian government go way deeper than previously known. "Numerous redactions include information that is publicly available, such as witness names and information previously declassified", he said in a statement.

"I will continue to challenge the IC's many unnecessary redactions with the hopes of releasing more of the report in the coming months".
