The Republican-controlled House Intelligence Committee today announced that it has completed its investigation of Russian interference with the 2016 presidential election. The Republicans on the committee unilaterally released a draft report in its year-long Russia probe.
Inexplicably, but not surprisingly, the draft report states that the committee found no evidence that President Trump or anyone affiliated with him colluded with Russian officials to affect the outcome of the 2016 election.
The Republicans also determined that, while the Russian government did pursue “active measures” to interfere in the election, it did not do so with the intention of helping Trump’s campaign, contradicting the U.S. intelligence community’s findings.
