The House Intelligence Committee just released a summary of its classified Russia investigation report, saying they found no evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia in the 2016 presidential election.

Earlier on Thursday, the full committee approved a highly contentious final draft on a strictly party-line vote.

Rep. Mike Conaway (R-TX), who ran the investigation for the committee, said that the report confirms “a pattern of Russian active measures in the United States, both through cyberattacks and their use of social media to sow discord.”

But the report clears the Trump team of any wrongdoing in the election, with one section detailing how “none of the interviewed witnesses provided evidence of collusion, coordination, or conspiracy between the Trump campaign and the Russian government.”

Democrats on the bipartisan committee attacked the report ahead of the vote, saying they didn’t write any of it and that the investigation had been closed prematurely with dozens of potential witnesses never interviewed.
