On Monday, the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence announced that it found no evidence between Trump and Russia.
This isn’t going to help the Trump Russia collusion narrative.
In a statement, the Committee said, “no evidence of collusion, coordination or conspiracy between the Trump campaign and the Russians.”
Fox News reports:
Rep. Mike Conaway, R-Texas, who has led the committee’s bipartisan investigation into Russian meddling and potential collusion with Trump campaign associates during the 2016 presidential election, announced Monday that the panel had completed a more than 150-page draft report, with its initial findings and recommendations.
“We didn’t find any evidence of collusion and I don’t think [Mueller] will either,” Conaway also stated on Fox News’ “Special Report.”
The committee’s investigation was based on four topics: Russian active measures against the 2016 U.S. election, the U.S. government’s response to the attack, links between Russians and the Trump and Clinton campaigns, and purported leaks of classified information.
“We believe we’ve got the information necessary to answer those for the American people,” Conaway said.
Despite a narrative perpetuated by the mainstream media and the Democratic Party claiming Donald Trump is Putin’s puppet, not a shred of evidence proves that.
What we have found out is 13 Russians ran pro-Trump and pro-Bernie Sanders Facebook ads. The same 13 Russians indicted by the Mueller probe organized anti-Trump protests in which well-known Democratic activists like Michael Moore were exposed for unknowingly attending a Russian organized protest.
The Fox News report mentioned the Intel Committee’s opinion on whether or not Putin was favorable for Trump.
The report also noted that based on its investigation which lasted more than a year, the committee disagreed with the intelligence community’s assessment that Russian President Vladimir Putin had a “supposed preference” for then-candidate Donald Trump.
The Mueller investigation is ongoing but has drifted from it’s original purpose of finding Trump Russia collusion. The probe has filed unrelated charges against former Trump officials Paul Manafort and Rick Gates.
It’ll be interesting to see how the media spins the final conclusion of the House Intel Committee.
