Four Bombshells in the House Intel Russia Report

The House Intelligence Committee released a summary of findings from its Russia investigation on Thursday, after closing down the often-partisan probe a few weeks ago.

In the summary, the committee says that it found no evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian intelligence. Various details also damn the response of the U.S. intelligence community and the overwrought zealotry of the Mueller probe.

Here are four critical details.

The executive branch never told the Trump campaign of possible compromised advisers.

Intelligence officials worried about Trump campaign advisers like Carter Page and Paul Manafort, but no members of the intelligence community or the Obama administration informed then-candidate Trump that members of his campaign could have been compromised. Trump dismissed Manafort in August 2016 after a series of news reports connected the campaign chairman to the Russian-backed Ukrainian government. Additionally, the committee described the FBI’s necessary efforts to alert hacking victims as “largely inadequate.”

No Mueller indictments have any relation to possible ‘collusion’ between the Trump campaign and Russian intelligence.

Special Counsel Robert Mueller indicted former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort and former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn on various charges last year, but the committee questioned the relevance of those charges to the Russian interference investigation. The committee also questioned the substance of Flynn’s false statement to the FBI, pointing out that FBI “agents did not detect any deception during Flynn’s interview.”

The committee found no evidence of ‘collusion.’

Through all of its interviews, review of documents, and investigation of events, the House Intelligence Committee found no proof that the Trump campaign worked with Russian intelligence to swing the 2016 election. The Trump organziation’s financial ties yielded no evidence of connections to Russian intelligence, and no evidence emerged that meetings between Trump campaign members and Russian officials resulted in any conspiracy.

Clapper, intelligence community probably leaked classified information to damage Trump.

“Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, now a CNN national security analyst, provided inconsistent testimony to the Committee about his contacts with the media, including CNN,” the committee wrote. Members of the intelligence community or Obama administration “dramatically” began leaking information alleging the Russians worked to elect Trump following Election Day.
