Here Is The House Intel Committee’s Long-Awaited Russia Report

The House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence on Friday released a heavily-redacted 253-page report laying out the findings of its 14-month investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential campaign.

The report, which was authored by committee Republicans and approved for release on a party-line vote, asserts that the investigation “found no evidence that the Trump campaign colluded, coordinated, or conspired with the Russian government.”

But the report notes that “the investigation did find poor judgment and ill-considered actions by the Trump and Clinton campaigns.” It singles out Trump associate’s contacts with Russian nationals and groups like Wikileaks during the campaign.

The committee also released a 99-page rebuttal written by Democrats upset with Republican members’ handling of the Russia investigation. Democrats, led by California Rep. Adam Schiff, claim that Republicans failed to interview relevant witnesses or to issue subpoenas that might uncover evidence of Trump campaign collusion.

The committee, which is chaired by Republican California Rep. Devin Nunes, conducted 73 witness interviews for the investigation and reviewed 308,000 documents.

The investigation, which was formally opened on Jan. 25, 2017, looked into four main areas: Russian active measures; intelligence related to any links between Russian operatives and political campaigns; the U.S. government’s response to Russia’s attempts to infiltrate the political system; and leaks of classified information from the intelligence community.
