The U.S. Republican-controlled House Intelligence Committee said Monday that the panel has found no evidence of alleged collusion between Donald Trump's presidential campaign and Russian Federation during the 2016 U.S. elections.
Conaway, who replaced Devin Nunes in his role, said that he expected the Democrats to suggest "extensive changes" to the report, and Adam Schiff, who leads the Democrats in the House Intelligence Committee, insisted that there is "clear and ovewhelming" evidence of collusion. "We found perhaps some bad judgment, inappropriate meetings", Mr. Conaway said during a briefing with reporters on Monday afternoon. The agencies have repeatedly asserted support for those findings, even as Trump's appointees took the helm.
Trump though declared in an all upper-case tweet that the committee "found no evidence of collusion or coordination" between his presidential campaign and Russian Federation, a claim he has made since the first allegations were made in late 2016. After a review, a vote will be held to submit the report for a declassification review by the US intelligence community.
In addition to the investigations by the House and Senate intelligence committees, the Senate Judiciary Committee has conducted a more limited probe and is not expected to issue a final report.

But, Conway added in a glaring denial of extensive USA intelligence findings, "We disagree with the narrative that they were trying to help Trump".
Just as with the controversial memo released earlier this year by the committee majority that accused the Federal Bureau of Investigation of abusing surveillance law, the report could damage the credibility of the panel among less partisan observers.
The House investigation, one of three main congressional probes of Russian Federation and the 2016 investigation, and possible collusion or obstruction of justice by Trump or his aides, has been marred for months by partisan wrangling, including the release of rival Republican and Democratic memos related to the probe.
Browns Trade DT Danny Shelton To Patriots
Shelton , a 6-2, 335-pound defensive tackle out of Washington , was selected 12th overall in the 2015 NFL Draft by the Browns . Last season, the defensive tackle notched 34 tackles in 16 games, contributing to the Browns improved run defense a year ago .
The report was slammed by Democrats as a partisan gift to the president.
As the committee concludes its investigation, the findings give more ammo to Donald Trump to claim his innocence while further dividing the political discourse as Republicans claim "no collusion" while democrats claim "collusion and cover-up". "History will judge its actions harshly".
Schiff said Republicans have also refused Democrats' requests to subpoena vital documents, including financial and communications records that could verify or refute witness testimony.
The idea that Russian Federation didn't have a preference for Donald Trump during the election is a departure from the consensus of the intelligence community. It will detail Russian cyberattacks on United States institutions during the election and the use of social media to sow discord. It will blame officials in former President Barack Obama's administration for a "lacklustre" response and look at leaks from the intelligence community to the media. The document includes more than 25 recommendations related to election and cyber security, counterintelligence practices and campaign finance rules. "We're not dealing in fiction, we're dealing in facts, and we found no evidence of any collusion".
