Despite Mueller's Push, House Republicans Declare No Evidence of Collusion

Friendly Reminder Dems Still Got Nothing On Allegation That Team Trump Colluded With The Russians

"We found perhaps some bad judgment, inappropriate meetings, inappropriate judgment in taking meetings", he told The Associated Press and other news organizations.

"On a fundamental aspect of our investigation - substantiating the conclusions of the Intelligence Community's assessment that the Russians interfered in our democracy to advance the Trump campaign, hurt Clinton and sow discord - we should have been able to issue a common report".

Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), the top Democrat on the Intelligence Committee, said in a statement that the Republican majority ended the investigation prematurely.

Conaway did not indicate what evidence the committee had collected that led it to contradict the Mueller indictment, which was built on intercepted emails, witness interviews and other evidence pointing to Russian Federation as a culprit.

According to Conaway, the report will agree with the intelligence assessment on most details, including that Russians did meddle in the election.

The Senate Intelligence Committee, which has had more bipartisan cooperation than the House, continues to investigate, and the Senate Judiciary Committee has its own inquiry active as well.

In another sign of the partisan tensions, the committee's top Democrat, Rep. Adam Schiff of California, had not been told as of midafternoon Monday that Republicans planned to end the witness interview portion of the Russian Federation investigation, according to a Democratic source. "If Russians have leverage over the President, GOP has decided that it would rather not know".

Lloyd Blankfein, Goldman Sachs CEO, may leave job by year-end
Following the 2008 crisis, Blankfein became the poster child for Wall Street's role in fueling the meltdown. Goldman Sachs is reportedly considering co-presidents Harvey Schwartz and David Solomon as replacements.

This is something that Democrats have complained about with the Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee.

The committee interviewed its final witness in the probe, former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski, last week.

The congressional investigations are completely separate from special counsel Robert Mueller's probe, which is likely to take much longer. Democrats say that effort has fallen well short of gathering all the evidence. The problem is that there is still no evidence that the Trump campaign colluded with the Russians to tilt the 2016 election. The House Ethics Committee eventually looked into the matter.

Schiff predicted that "Republicans will be held accountable for abandoning a critical investigation of such vital national importance" if new information arises from future indictments and other reports.

Schiff said Republicans have also refused Democrats' requests to subpoena vital documents, including financial and communications records that could verify or refute witness testimony. Tom Rooney, a Republican member of the committee, however said that was "not at all" the case on CNN.

Republicans on the committee had been saying for weeks that they were near the end of the interview phase of the probe and they would release their findings. Over the a year ago, an investigation has been taking place, led by special counsel Robert Mueller, which has indicted multiple past and current associates of the president with their own link back to the Kremlin.
