West Texas Congressman Mike Conaway notes there may have been some bad judgments or inappropriate meetings, but no collusion.

House committee Chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., was set to send the majority's draft of the report to Democrats on Tuesday for their review. Donald Trump and his key assistants repeatedly rejected allegations of any unlawful contacts with Russian officials during the election campaign. We can't find any collusion.

"I think he has been under attack for a very long time saying he colluded with Russians", said Nunes.

The draft document says there is no evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russians.

Following the news of the report Trump took to Twitter late Monday announcing no collusion was found.

National Football League free agency rumors: Drew Brees staying with Saints
Drew Brees has agreed to return to the Saints on a two-year, $50 million deal, according to multiple reports . That deal included one of the top salaries in the National Football League (one new year at $24.25 million).

Mr Trump, though, declared in an all upper-case tweet that the committee "found no evidence of collusion or co-ordination" between his presidential campaign and Russian Federation, a claim he has made since the first allegations were made in late 2016.

In an interview with MSNBC's Rachel Maddow, Schiff said that Democrats would do their best to continue following all relevant leads without the GOP, while acknowledging that the party could revisit unresolved issues in 2019 if his party wins control of the House and with it the committee's gavel.

He continued: "I think there is absolutely evidence to show though they were trying to help Trump at some point, but also they were also trying to hurt our side as well".

The Senate Intelligence Committee has generally acted with bipartisanship and is working on a report about safeguarding USA elections. "And the Republicans will have to answer why they're not interested in finding out..."

Representative Adam Schiff, the top Democrat on the committee, slammed the Republican decision to end the investigation.

If Russians have leverage over the President, GOP has decided that it would rather not know.

"While the Majority members of our committee have indicated for some time that they have been under great pressure to end the investigation, it is nonetheless another tragic milestone for this Congress, and represents yet another capitulation to the executive branch", he said in a statement.

But the House Republicans differ from the nation's top spies on the point of whether Russian Federation wanted Trump to win.

The House Intelligence Committee has been carrying out an investigation separate from that of special counsel Robert Mueller.

In recent weeks, the committee's internal dysfunction grew even wider as national headlines followed Democrats and Republicans issuing dueling memos over alleged Justice Department and Federal Bureau of Investigation abuses at the nation's secret surveillance court when securing warrants to spy on Trump campaign personnel.

Explosion targeted at Palestinian Prime Minister injures seven
Deputy Fatah chairman Mahmoud al Alojul said the attack was in the context of attempts to "liquidate the Palestinian cause". The Prime Minister was not hurt in the incident in the Gaza Strip, which he rarely visits, according to The Independent .

Democrats later released their own 10-page memo rebutting the Republican allegations, saying the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Justice Department handled the warrant appropriately and the surveillance court was told there was political motivation behind the opposition research. The Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee never launched a genuine investigation to begin with, so we can hardly be expected to take their conclusions seriously.
