Intelligence committee’s top Democrat says Republicans have ‘placed the interests of protecting the president over protecting the country’
A congressional committee led by a member of Donald Trump’s presidential transition team has announced that Trump’s 2016 campaign did not collude with Russian operatives and that the committee was nearing the completion of its investigation of the matter.
The announcement drew a sharp rebuke from the top Democrat on the committee, Adam Schiff, who declared it a “tragic milestone for this Congress” and accused his Republican colleagues of “yet another capitulation to the executive branch”.
THE HOUSE INTELLIGENCE COMMITTEE HAS, AFTER A 14 MONTH LONG IN-DEPTH INVESTIGATION, FOUND NO EVIDENCE OF COLLUSION OR COORDINATION BETWEEN THE TRUMP CAMPAIGN AND RUSSIA TO INFLUENCE THE 2016 PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION.
