House Intelligence Committee Releases Findings on Russian Election Interference

The Republican-led House intelligence committee on Friday released a lengthy report concluding it found no evidence that Donald Trump's campaign colluded with Russian Federation in the 2016 presidential campaign, drawing praise from the president and rebuttals from Democrats.

"They did not find any evidence of collusion, but they do buy the story that Russian Federation interfered in the election", Joe Lauria, editor of Consortium News and author of "How I Lost, By Hillary Clinton", told Radio Sputnik's Loud & Clear on Friday.

In a sign of the partisan squabbling on the committee, Schiff criticised the chairman, Representative Devin Nunes (Republican-California).

"They were very forceful in saying that the Clinton campaign actually did contribute to Russian Federation, so maybe somebody ought to look at that", Trump declared.

The lawmakers criticized Donald Trump Jr. for meeting Russian attorney Natalia Veselnitskaya in search of damaging info on Hillary Clinton. "Wow! A total Witch Hunt!".

DOJ probing Huawei over possible sanctions violations
Ciena and Infinera, of course, compete with both Huawei and ZTE in global markets (except China ). The DOJ's actions follow a larger pattern of the USA increasingly cracking down on Chinese firms.

They announced that finding in March and released a report on Friday explaining how they arrived at that result.

They also urged the body to release transcripts of interviews with key witnesses in the probe.

President Trump is once again going after the office of special counsel Robert Mueller, this time in response to the House Intel Committee majority's report released today. But the report does "find poor judgment and ill-considered actions" by both campaigns-Trump's for meeting with Russians and praising WikiLeaks, Clinton's for obscuring their role in the creation of the Steele dossier.

"Throughout the investigation, Committee Republicans chose not to seriously investigate - or even see, when in plain sight - evidence of collusion", Schiff said in a statement on Friday.

President Trump's attempts to do business in Russian Federation before the campaign also had nothing to do with collusion, Republicans argue.

White Sox pitcher Danny Farquhar expected to remain in hospital three weeks
He has played with the Blue Jays, the Seattle Mariners , Tampa Bay Rays and his current team the White Sox. In 2008, the Toronto Blue Jays drafted Farquhar in the 10 round of the Major League Baseball draft.

"When we started this investigation, we set out to give the American people the answers to the questions they've been asking and we promised to be as transparent as possible in our final report", he added.

The public portion of the report does not make clear where that information came from - whether from Comey or another source.

Rep. Mike Conaway, R-Texas, said he was "extremely disappointed" with the amount of redactions in the report.

But.maybe now the House Intel Committee can launch an investigation into that!

The former chair of the Trump campaign has also been indicted as well as his deputy. When Republicans released a previously classified memo accusing the Federal Bureau of Investigation of bias when it got a warrant to spy on former Trump campaign official Carter Page, the head of the Federal Bureau of Investigation - a Trump appointee - said he had "grave concerns" about omissions that "impact the memo's accuracy". "Numerous redactions include information that is publicly available, such as witness names and information previously declassified", he said in a statement. The finding was vehemently opposed by Democrats and other critics who contend the committee did not do its due diligence in investigating connections between Trump's associates and the Kremlin. The panel also recommended the executive branch "crack down" on leaks by conducting polygraphs of all for limited certain employees with top secret clearances.
