Trump Says Special Counsel Should Never Been Appointed to Probe Russia Collusion

Trump Says Special Counsel Should Never Been Appointed to Probe Russia Collusion”

The heavily redacted report says the committee found no evidence of collusion, coordination, or conspiracy between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation.

"It was a great report - no collusion which I knew anyway, no coordination, no nothing". "It's a witch hunt, that's all it is", he told reporters in the Oval Office.

The Republican House Intelligence Committee report references that infamous Trump Tower meeting in June of 2016 but says investigators "did not ultimately obtain" the information they sought.

An investigation, dubbed a Witch Hunt, led by special counsel Robert Mueller is ongoing, as are probes led by the Senate intelligence and judiciary committees.

The jab towards Special Counsel Robert Mueller raises question over whether Trump is considering firing the former Federal Bureau of Investigation director, who was appointed to investigate the president's ties to Russian Federation.

The report said, "Continued leaks of classified information have damaged national security and potentially endangered lives".

"Their report, as with their overall conduct of the investigation, is unworthy of this committee, the House of Representatives, and most importantly, the American people, who are now left to try to discern what is true and what is not", minority Democrats wrote in their response.

Panel Democrats fiercely opposed the conclusion, arguing that the committee did not interview enough witnesses or gather enough evidence to support its finding.

Shortly after the report was released, Trump heralded it on Twitter and called for the investigations to end. But the probe did provide important public revelations.

The one thing both Republicans and Democrats do agree on is that Russian Federation is likely to run interference campaigns in this year's midterm election- and the US needs to do more to strengthen cyber-security. One day later, the committee's chairman, Devin Nunes, took a clandestine trip to the White House grounds to review classified information that quickly drew scrutiny after he publicly disclosed that Trump associates' communications had been swept up by USA spy agencies and accused Obama administration officials of misconduct.

Former FBI Director James Comey chose the March 20, 2017, hearing of the House intelligence committee to publicly reveal that the FBI had been investigating the Trump campaign since July 2016. Rep. Mike Conaway, R-Texas, said some of the data redacted included public information, such as declassified material and names of witnesses.

It also said Congress should consider revising the controversial Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) to include "malicious worldwide cyber actors".

The committee urged intelligence officials to immediately alert presidential candidates when they discover "legitimate" threats to the campaign.
