Russia probe: House Intel Republicans End Investigation

Postby Professor Fate » Mon Mar 12, 2018 6:06 pm

WASHINGTON — Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee called an end on Monday to their year-long investigation of Russian meddling in the 2016 election, concluding that there was "no evidence of collusion, coordination, or conspiracy between the Trump campaign and the Russians."

The probe was ended over the objections of Democrats, who charged that key documents and testimony still have not been obtained.

...The GOP majority on the House panel will show its 150-page draft report to Democrats on Tuesday before seeking approval from the full committee to release it to the public. Democrats plan to write a separate report that will likely conclude there is strong evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin.

Democrats, despite earlier claims, will not be able to provide any evidence of collusion, and instead will try to argue that there are still more documents to be reviewed, and witnesses to be called.

Rep. Mike Conaway, R-Texas, who led the Russia investigation for the House Republicans, said the panel conducted 73 witness interviews, held nine hearings and briefings, and reviewed over 300,000 documents.

This is the Nunes Memo part two

“the Intelligence Community Assessment’s judgments, except with respect to Putin’s supposed preference for candidate Trump.”

Additional follow-on efforts arising from the investigation include oversight of the unmasking of Americans’ names in intelligence reports, FISA abuse, and other matters.”

Sadly for Mr. trump, the investigation that matters is the one conducted by Mr. Mueller, not the political theater coming out of the House of Representatives.

True, and this House Committee finding, will help prepare Wabash and all, for the bigger disappointment to come. If there was any evidence, it would have been found already by the House Democrats, and/or leaked from the Mueller probe.

It was a dog and pony show and it's probably good that it was put out of its misery. I'll wait for the real investigation's findings.

Same here. If Mueller says there is nothing there I'll be the first one to say it's time to move on.

Trump Tower meeting, Roger Stone advanced knowledge of Wikileaks releasing hacked emails, pro- Russian sycophants who just so happened to find themselves on the Trump Campaign, four guilty pleas, Trumps public statements kissing Putin's behind. Forget leaks, we got a flood of evidence.

Take another look at your list, and ask yourself which ones are crimes. It's not a crime to meet with a Russian. The Roger stone thing has been debunked after we learned that the dates were wrong. It's not a crime for a tycoon with business dealings in Russia to know other people with dealings with Russia. It's not even a crime to kiss Putin's behind.

That leaves you with four guilty pleas that may not even have anything to do with Trump.

Well, now you're just talking about election collusion, but the Mueller investigation is looking into all things trump. I'm not nearly so sanguine about those results, are you? Do you really think that trump's business dealings are all above board?

At any rate I'm all for any investigation of our public servants that turns up as many indictments as this investigation seems to be doing.

I must admit though, I'm wondering what rock you're going to crawl under when Mueller's investigation is complete and the evidence against trump is incontrovertible. Will we see any apology from you?

Interesting. Tillerson sharply criticizes Russia, then Trump fires him.

There's already been indictments and guilty pleas. So the chance of disappointment has already passed.

The question now is how many more denizens of Trump's personal swamp are going to get charged.

How the goalposts have moved, Fordama. It used to be all about Trump, but it seems you've all lowered your hopes to snaring associates of Trump.

And the House Intelligence Committee Republicans said as much. they are still open for business investigating other issues.

No.

Apology no, I haven't done anything to apologize for...But if that does happen, I will admit I was wrong.

I very much doubt, that if Mueller says there is no evidence of Trump colluding with the Russians, the Trump bashers on this board will do the same.

I know one that will say it is time to move on since there was nothing found.
