President Donald Trump declared on Friday morning that the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election and potential connections to his campaign “MUST END NOW” after the House Intelligence Committee released its final report on the issue.
“Just Out: House Intelligence Committee Report released. “No evidence” that the Trump Campaign “colluded, coordinated or conspired with Russia.” Clinton Campaign paid for Opposition Research obtained from Russia- Wow! A total Witch Hunt! MUST END NOW!” the president wrote on Twitter.
Just Out: House Intelligence Committee Report released. “No evidence” that the Trump Campaign “colluded, coordinated or conspired with Russia.” Clinton Campaign paid for Opposition Research obtained from Russia- Wow! A total Witch Hunt! MUST END NOW!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 27, 2018
The report found “no evidence that the Trump campaign colluded, coordinated, or conspired with the Russian government” but did note that there was “poor judgment and ill-considered actions” by both the Trump campaign and Hillary Clinton‘s campaign.
The House’s investigation is just one of several that are currently being conducted into Russia’s meddling in the 2016 election—including one by Special Counsel Robert Mueller. In March, the Republican-led committee said it was ending its investigation, drawing scorn from Democrats.
While Trump highlighted the overall findings of the House Intelligence Committee, the report did criticize his campaign for meeting with a Russian lawyer who said she had damaging information on Clinton and its “periodic praise for and communications” with WikiLeaks.
Rep. Mike Conway (R-Texas), who led the House investigation, said in a statement that he hopes the public will draw conclusions from the report but blasted the intelligence community for redactions made in it.
“With the public release of this report, the American people will have the opportunity to access the information used to draw the conclusions found in last month’s findings and recommendations,” he said.
