The House Intelligence Committee is shutting down its investigation into alleged Russian meddling, saying it found no evidence of collusion.

On Monday, Congressman Mike Conaway said the committee found evidence of bad judgment, but no evidence of collusion.

President Trump took to Twitter shortly after the announcement, celebrating the end of the 14-month long investigation.


The committee says it will not interview any more witnesses, and is in the process of drafting its final report.

The report will contradict allegations made by the intelligence community that Russian President Vladimir Putin showed a preference for then-candidate Donald Trump.

“Yes, the Russians tried to interfere with our election process. Yes, they had cyber attacks, but we could find no evidence of collusion between either campaign and the Russians.”

The development in the investigation indicates the polarizing probe may be nearing its end.

A draft of the roughly 150-page report will be delivered to committee Democrats for review Tuesday.
