  • Russia probe: House intel Republicans end investigation despite Dem protests

Democrats say there are still scores of witnesses the committee should call, and argue that Republicans have failed to use subpoenas to obtain documents and require witnesses to answer questions that are central to the investigation.

Conaway said, "Well, the headlines are that we've reached that point where we've interviewed all the folks we need to. We found perhaps some bad judgment, inappropriate meetings", Mr. Conaway said during a briefing with reporters on Monday afternoon. "We're not dealing in fiction, we're dealing in facts and we found no evidence of any collusion".

While Donald Trump was happy with the Republican-led report by the House Intelligence Committee, critics of the president chose to sound off in response [VIDEO].

Conaway said that he would seek Democrats' input to edit the report, and said he expected some of the process would be bipartisan, "with precious little pushback". "I think that their goal was chaos".

The aides spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly about the intelligence material. We'll see whether they merit much of a mention in the final GOP report.

The Republican panel members said they are shutting down the committee's yearlong investigation and plan to release their findings in a 150-page report.

Adam Schiff, the senior Democrat on the panel, said the move came under pressure from the White House, where Trump and close advisors face a separate collusion investigation by the Justice Department's independent prosecutor Robert Mueller. It left Democrats exasperated, as they charged that Republicans were doing all they could to shield the President. He says the Obama Administration was slow to act.

It will include at least 25 recommendations, including how to improve election security, respond to cyberattacks and improve counterintelligence efforts.

The committee stunned Washington most by taking direct aim at the assessment by USA spy chiefs that President Vladimir Putin engineered the Russian election meddling operation specifically to hurt Hillary Clinton and benefit Trump. "If Russians have leverage over the President, GOP has decided that it would rather not know". The problem is that there is still no evidence that the Trump campaign colluded with the Russians to tilt the 2016 election. Despite a promise of dirt on Clinton ahead of the meeting, there's no evidence that such material was exchanged, he said. A declassified version of the report will be released to the general public.

On a day when the White House press secretary declined to support the British prime minister Theresa May's conclusion that it is "highly likely" that Russian Federation was responsible for the poisoning of the former spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter, Yulia, Conaway argued vehemently against the notion that the Trump campaign had cooperated with Russian Federation to disrupt the presidential election.

Schiff and the rest of the committee Democrats have complained that committee Republicans have failed to force witnesses to answer questions, to subpoena documents or to even attempt to look into potential financial entanglements among Trump, his associates and Russian Federation.
