House Intelligence Committee Democrats release their own report on Russia investigation

Democrats on the House Intelligence Committee released a status report on the investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election Tuesday evening, one day after the Republicans on the committee abruptly ended the probe.

The report lists more than 30 key witnesses who were not interviewed, investigative threads Democrats say they were prevented from pursuing, and outstanding lines of inquiry. House Republicans said on Monday they agreed with intelligence agencies who said Russia interfered in the election, but saw no evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia. Rep. Adam Schiff (Calif.), the ranking Democrat on the committee, told The Washington Post "there's no way for them to reach the conclusions that they want to start with unless they ignore or mischaracterize what we've been able to learn."
