Trump Fires Off All-Caps Tweet Celebrating House Intel Ending Russia Probe, Gets Brutal Response

President Trump is being dragged and slapped around the internet for “loudly” celebrating the Republican-majority House Intelligence Committee’s conclusions on its probe into Russian election meddling after the panel said it found no evidence of collusion with the Trump campaign.

Rep. Mike Conaway (R-Texas), who is overseeing the Russia investigation, told reporters on Monday that Intel Committee is shutting down its investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election, claiming that “there was no collusion found.”

“We found perhaps some bad judgment, inappropriate meetings, inappropriate judgment in taking meetings — but only Tom Clancy could take this series of inadvertent contacts, meetings, whatever, and weave that into some sort of a spy thriller that could go out there,” Conaway said.

A draft of that roughly 150-page report, which says there was no collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia, will be available to Democrats on the committee on Tuesday.

The document contradicts the U.S. intelligence community’s assessment that Russian President Vladimir Putin favored Trump during the campaign.

The committee’s top Democrat, Rep. Adam Schiff (Calif.), ripped the decision to end the investigation.

“While the Majority members of our committee have indicated for some time that they have been under great pressure to end the investigation, it is nonetheless another tragic milestone for this Congress, and represents yet another capitulation to the executive branch,” Schiff said in a statement.
