I’m NOT gonna call much of an investigation….
It NEVER was….
The chair of the committee Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Ca) never made it more clear that he was a Donald Trump lacky…..
Any serious effort to examine Donald Trump’s issue’s in Congress will be handled by the US Senate…..
Democrats on the committee will probably want to release their own conclusions….

“The Intelligence Community stands by its January 2017 assessment, ‘Assessing Russian Activities and Intentions in Recent US Elections.’ We will review the HPSCI report findings,” ODNI Spokesman Brian P. Hale sai in a statement.
The Republicans said that while there were Russian “active measures” to undermine the U.S. election in 2016, “We have found no evidence of collusion, coordination, or conspiracy between the Trump campaign and the Russians.”
The full draft report must now undergo a declassification review, the Republicans said. Further, it has not yet been shared with Democratic members of the committee, led by Rep. Adam B. Schiff, D-Calif….
Congressional Committees can no longer conduct credible investigations without poisoning them with partisan politics, Rep. Tom Rooney said.
“We’ve gone completely off the rails, and now we’re just basically a political forum for people to leak information to drive the day’s news,” the Florida Republican said in an interview Monday with CNN. “We’ve lost all credibility, and we’re going to issue probably two different reports, unfortunately. … In that regard, that’s why I called for the investigation to end.”…..
