    ‘It doesn’t look like anything to me,’ said Bernard.

    We investigated ourselves and found that we did nothing wrong. Case closed.

    Edit: While I’m here, here’s Adam Schiff’s statement

    Edit II:

    >“Today, the House Majority has announced it is terminating the Russia investigation, leaving to others the important work of determining the full extent of Russian interference in our election, the role of U.S. persons connected to the Trump campaign in that intervention, possible efforts to obstruct the investigation by the President and most important, what needs to be done to protect the country going forward. 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. By ending its oversight role in the only authorized investigation in the House, the Majority has placed the interests of protecting the President over protecting the country, and history will judge its actions harshly.

    >“Next week, it will be one year since our investigation began with its first open hearing, and the country learned that the Trump campaign had been the subject of a counterintelligence investigation since July of the election year. Since that time, we have learned a great deal about countless secret meetings, conversations and communications between Trump campaign officials and the Russians, all of which the Trump Administration initially denied, would later misrepresent, and finally be forced to acknowledge. Thirteen Russians have been indicted in a far reaching conspiracy in which the Russians sought to influence our election by helping Donald Trump, hurting the Hillary Clinton campaign and sowing discord in the United States. Most significant, high-ranking Trump campaign and Administration officials have also been indicted, including the President’s national security advisor, his campaign chair and deputy campaign chair, as well as one of his foreign policy advisors, and three of those have already pled guilty.

    >“During that first open hearing of our investigation, I asked whether we could conduct this investigation in the kind of thorough and nonpartisan manner that the seriousness of the issues merited, or whether the enormous political consequences of our work would make that impossible. At that time, I said that I did not know the answer, but ‘if this committee can do its work properly, if we can pursue the facts wherever they lead, unafraid to compel witnesses to testify, to hear what they have to say, to learn what we will and, after exhaustive work, reach a common conclusion, it would be a tremendous public service and one that is very much in the national interest.’

    >“Regrettably, that challenge proved too much. The Majority was not willing to pursue the facts wherever they would lead, would prove afraid to compel witnesses like Steve Bannon, Hope Hicks, Jeff Sessions, Donald Trump Jr., Corey Lewandowski and so many others to answer questions relevant to our investigation. It proved unwilling to subpoena documents like phone records, text messages, bank records and other key records so that we might determine the truth about the most significant attack on our democratic institutions in history. Instead, it began a series of counter-investigations, designed to attack the credibility of the FBI, the Departments of Justice and State, and investigate anyone and anything other than what they were charged to do — investigate Russia’s interference in our election and the role the Trump campaign played. Ironically, even while they close down the Russia investigation, they plan to continue trying to put our own government on trial: this is a great service to the President, and a profound disservice to the country.

    >“Some will say that we should leave the investigation to Special Counsel Mueller anyway, since he has the resources and independence to do the job. But this fundamentally misapprehends the mission of the Special Counsel, which is to determine whether U.S. laws were broken and who should be prosecuted. It is not Mueller’s job to tell the American people what happened, that is our job, and the Majority has walked away from it. Others may be tempted to say a pox on both houses, and suggest that in a dispute between the parties, both must be equally culpable. But after months of urging the Majority to do a credible investigation, the Minority was put in the position of going along with a fundamentally unserious investigative process, or pointing out what should be done, what must be done, to learn the truth. We chose the latter course.

    >“On a fundamental aspect of our investigation — substantiating the conclusions of the Intelligence Community’s assessment that the Russians interfered in our democracy to advance the Trump campaign, hurt Clinton and sow discord — we should have been able to issue a common report. On those issues, the evidence is clear and overwhelming that the Intelligence Community Assessment was correct. On a whole host of investigative threads, our work is fundamentally incomplete, some issues partially investigated, others, like that involving credible allegations of Russian money laundering, remain barely touched. If the Russians do have leverage over the President of the United States, the Majority has simply decided it would rather not know. On the final aspect of our work — setting out the prescriptions for protecting the country going forward — we will endeavor to continue our work, with or without the active participation of the Majority.

    >“In the coming weeks and months, new information will continue to be exposed through enterprising journalism, indictments by the Special Counsel, or continued investigative work by Committee Democrats and our counterparts in the Senate. And each time this new information becomes public, Republicans will be held accountable for abandoning a critical investigation of such vital national importance.”

    Finding no evidence is easy, you just don’t look for it. The house investigation was a shit-show from the beginning.

  4. AFlaccoSeagulls March 14, 2018 / 8:23 pm

    So basically the Republicans investigated themselves and, contrary to *actual* grand jury indictments, found nothing? Interesting.

    > “We found no evidence of collusion,” Conaway told reporters Monday, suggesting that those who believe there was are reading too many spy novels. **“We found perhaps some bad judgment, inappropriate meetings, inappropriate judgment in taking meetings.** But only Tom Clancy or Vince Flynn or someone else like that could take this series of inadvertent contacts with each other, or meetings or whatever, and weave that into sort of a fiction page turner, spy thriller.”

    So basically they found Jr’s meeting with the Russians, but concluded that it’s not collusion, even though he already released the emails saying the meeting was about fucking collusion….?

    > He also said there was no evidence that anything “untoward” happened at a 2016 meeting between members of the Trump campaign and Russians, though he called it ill-advised. Despite a promise of dirt on Clinton ahead of the meeting, there’s no evidence that such material was exchanged, he said.

    Ah, gotcha. So the *desire* to collude is okay, even if it’s admitted to, as long as no *actual* collusion (allegedly) took place. Got it.

    > According to Conaway, the report will agree with the intelligence assessment on most details, including that Russians did meddle in the election. It will detail Russian cyberattacks on U.S. institutions during the election and the use of social media to sow discord. It will also show a pattern of Russian attacks on European allies — information that could be redacted in the final report. **It will blame officials in former President Barack Obama’s administration for a “lackluster” response and look at leaks from the intelligence community to the media.**

    Glad to see they’re continuing the bullshit of finally admitting there *was* meddling, but actually blaming Obama for the response. Wonder if Mitch McConnell’s name will appear anywhere in this report since he was the guy who refused to have a bipartisan statement about the meddling? I’m guessing it won’t.

    > The report is also expected to turn the subject of collusion toward the Clinton campaign, saying an anti-Trump dossier compiled by a former British spy and paid for by Democrats was one way that Russians tried to influence the election. Conaway did not suggest that Clinton knowingly coordinated with the Russians, but said the dossier clearly “would have hurt him and helped her.”

    Oh, they’re *actually* trying to turn this into a “BUT THE CLINTON CAMPAIGN….” now? This is just pathetic.

    This entire report is nothing but partisan bullshit.

  5. Tombot3000 March 14, 2018 / 8:23 pm

    Republicans: We didn’t look for collusion, so we didn’t find any. No evidence of collusion!

  6. wandererchronicles March 14, 2018 / 8:23 pm

    Partisan committee with nothing to gain and everything to lose refuses to come to a conclusion they don’t like. Quel surprise.

    This is the best tl;dr I could make, [original](https://www.cnn.com/2018/03/12/politics/house-republicans-russia-conclusions/index.html) reduced by 87%. (I’m a bot)
    > The conclusions will be met with sharp disagreement from Democrats and are bound to inflame partisan tensions on a committee that's been beleaguered by partisanship throughout the course of its Russia probe.

    > Rep. Mike Conaway, the Texas Republican leading the Russia investigation, said Monday that the committee had concluded its interviews for the Russia investigation, and the Republican staff had prepared a 150-page draft report that they would give to Democrats to review on Tuesday morning.

    > Conaway said the June 2016 Trump Tower meeting between senior campaign officials and a Russian lawyer where dirt on Clinton was promised was "Ill advised." But he said that the committee did not turn up any evidence of collusion, arguing the promoter who organized the meeting had exaggerated what the Russians would provide.

    This is not the end of Muellers investigation so it doesn’t mean anything.

    So, after a solid year of protecting Trump from as much as possible and without hearing from all the witnesses, the GOP just simply announce no harm no foul.

    Meanwhile, Trump will not speak even one word against Putin and the GOP won’t either.

    Ya know, I’m seeing a trend here.

    Putin, Trump, and the GOP, are all bonded together.

    Sounds like obstruction of justice from the GOP Congress.

  13. Guitar_of_Orpheus March 14, 2018 / 8:23 pm

    It blows my mind how short sighted Republican thinking is on this. They’ve let their political party devolve into a cult of personality. They’ve pissed away every conviction they ever had, every ounce of integrity they ever had. They’ve gone from the party of the free market to the party of protectionism. They’ve undermined the intelligence community and the FBI.

    All of this to support a guy with a 37% approval rating.

  14. scruffythejanitor77 March 14, 2018 / 8:23 pm

    We checked with the people we colluded with and found no evidence of collusion, kthxbaiiiii

  15. somename_upvoter March 14, 2018 / 8:23 pm

    Direct quote: Burr said: “It’s collusion on part of the Russians, I guess, but not the Trump campaign.”

    From Wikipedia: Collusion is an agreement between two or more parties…

    Any guesses on whether Burr is being intentionally misleading VS. ignorant to the meaning of the words he uses?

  16. imatworksoshhh March 14, 2018 / 8:23 pm

    Thankfully it’s not up to the House Republicans to decide if there was or was not collusion.

    The senate Intel committee is still investigating. Muller is not stopping. This doesn’t stop state investigations

    This is a desperate *nothing to see here* Hail Mary.

  20. dragonblade_94 March 14, 2018 / 8:23 pm

    “Bottom line: Russians did commit active measures against our elections in ’16, and we think they’ll do that in the future… It’s clear they sowed discord in our elections. … But we couldn’t establish the same conclusions the CIA did that they specifically wanted to help Trump.” -Conway

    We are now at the point where Republicans fully acknowledge that Russia interfered, only stopping short before outright saying they favored Trump or Trump’s team willfully colluded. It’s almost unbelievable, considering how the topic was treated just last year.

  21. fatcIemenza March 14, 2018 / 8:23 pm

    Says the committee led and staffed by people on Trump’s transition team lol the HIC has been a farce since the getgo with Nunes making secret trips to the White House to brief the people he’s supposed to be investigating

  22. kbpls March 14, 2018 / 8:23 pm

    Aren’t “House Republicans” and “Intelligence Committee” mutually exclusive terms?

  23. greasy_pee March 14, 2018 / 8:23 pm

    “We investigated ourselves and found we didn’t do all this obviously illegal shit”

  24. Goldcaliber March 14, 2018 / 8:23 pm

    Republicans will be remembered in history as the party of traitors. Selling us out to Russia for the White House. I urge everyone to them out this November. Edit: I’ve attracted /r/thedonald posters.

  25. miketwo345 March 14, 2018 / 8:23 pm

    Before these comments devolve into lunacy, does anyone have a link to the actual draft report? I’d like to read the whole thing for myself and then form an opinion.

  26. JonAce March 14, 2018 / 8:23 pm

    I’ll take my chances with the non-partisan all-star team doing the investigating.

  27. Circumin March 14, 2018 / 8:23 pm

    The weird thing is that this was supposed to be a probe into Russian interference not republican collusion. Why did they end it with the conclusion that “who knows why Russia did it but certainly we had nothing to do with it”.

  30. Apollo416 March 14, 2018 / 8:23 pm

    “We looked into our own actions and found we haven’t done anything wrong.”

    This is why having any group—especially an openly soulless and corrupt one—investigate itself is a laughable waste of time.

    Oh, that was still going on. The competent investigation that Mueller is running made me completely forget about it.

  34. gerry_mandering_50 March 14, 2018 / 8:23 pm

    The guilty co-conspirators say the investigation should be ended immediately, because they see nothing, hear nothing, and say nothing.

  35. elvispunk March 14, 2018 / 8:23 pm

    Don’t forget these are all the same hacks who traditionally slob the knob of any law-enforcement/intelligence agency under ANY circumstances. This time, they are all crooked, which is super-convenient, given the direction of the investigation.

  36. prjindigo March 14, 2018 / 8:23 pm

    So a group of people who are under investigation have released their own report that there’s nothing to investigate.

    Sounds like there’s an assfucking coming down the pipeline and they’re in denial.

    Guys. Bit of a difference between a Republican committee finding republicans clear of all guilt and the Mueller investigation. I always take it with a massive grain of salt whenever a parties internal investigations find them innocent of all wrong doings.

    Why even bother with internal investigations? The only people that ever even pretend they are meaningful are shit-stains like Trump. Might as well flush the money down the toilet and have done with it.

    Yep, no whales in this glass of salt water. Whales do not exist in our oceans!

    At first I thought this meant the Russia probe was over. Is this just saying the Republicans had their own investigation and found Trump had nothing to do with anything? Cool?

    Now I really want to know what Mueller has since they are trying to all stop the investigation now

    Yeah, fully partisan, they hid this from the Democrat members of the board and worked specifically to exclude them.

    They took a proper and needed investigation and made it into a blatantly obvious political play. Republicans need to wake up and clean house. A lot of their top are a bunch of corrupt, authoritarian failures of representatives.

    Registered Republicans, for the most part, have nothing to do with the corruption of fixing an election. With that in mind, half of Democrats should be removed or arrested for fixing the Democratic Primary as well. I personally believe Mueller is an American first and a Republican second in this situation.

    The optics of announcing this just as Russian agents assassinate two people in London is just great.

    In fact, the Republican HIC said there’s no evidence that Republicans interfered with the US elections.
