US House Intel Committee shuts down investigation into ‘Russian meddling’

The US House Intelligence Committee has shut down its investigation into "Russian meddling" in the 2016 presidential election, a top Republican involved in the probe announced on Monday.

    According to The Hill, the committee will not interview any further witnesses.

    The 150-page draft document affirms what many had suspected all along: there is no evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russians.

    “We found no evidence of collusion,” Rep. Mike Conaway said on Monday. “We found perhaps some bad judgment, inappropriate meetings, inappropriate judgment in taking meetings — but only Tom Clancy could take this series of inadvertent contacts, meetings, whatever, and weave that into some sort of a spy thriller that could go out there.”

    The report firmly contradicts an official US intelligence community assessment that Russian President Vladimir Putin showed a “preference” for Donald Trump during the presidential race.

    “We couldn’t establish the same conclusion that the CIA did that [the Russians] specifically wanted to help Trump.”

    Republicans are already preparing their final report, Conaway told the media, on one of the most politically charged questions examined by the committee.

    Sadly, the entire US mainstream media has been implicated, directly, as surrogates of the Democratic Party as well as the said intelligence community, working together to undermine American elections and frame the elected president as a “foreign agent”.

    This investigation was separate from the “independent” investigation being conducted by former FBI director Robert Mueller, staffed by anti-Trump FBI officials and Hillary Clinton campaign staffers.

    The Mueller probe has so far indicted Paul Manafort over a beach house tax-avoidance plot, and recently issued indictments for over a dozen ordinary Russians for allegedly posting clickbait on social media.

    Russian President Vladimir Putin said these ordinary Russians could have been “Jews with Russian citizenship” The Times Of Israel reported.

    In the interview, a full transcript of which was released by the Kremlin on Saturday, the Russia president said “I do not care at all, because they do not represent the government.

    “Maybe they are not even Russians, but Ukrainians, Tatars or Jews, but with Russian citizenship, which should also be checked; maybe they have dual citizenship or a green card; maybe the US paid them for this. How can you know that? I do not know either,” he said.

    He said such efforts could in no way be tied to the Kremlin. “They do not represent the interests of the Russian state,” he said.
