A House Intelligence Committee has determined there was no collusion between Russia and President Donald Trump before he was sworn in as President.
“We have found no evidence of collusion, coordination, or conspiracy between the Trump campaign and the Russians,” the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence said in a summary statement Monday.
The committee has drafted a 150-page report of initial findings that will be released March 13.
This follows a year-long investigation led by Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

Trump has said repeatedly that there was never any “collusion” with Russia, and that the investigation into such has been a “witch hunt.”
The President on Monday night tweeted about the summary report.
In call capital letters, he wrote: “The House Intelligence Committee has, after a 14-month long in-depth investigation, found no evidence of collusion or coordination between the Trump campaign and Russia to influence the 2016 Presidential election.”

The committee’s investigation findings are being released by Republicans, and Democrats are expected to issue a rebuttal.
