In a 253-page, heavily redacted report, the Republican-led committee said while it found no evidence of collusion, over the course of its investigation, it did "identify numerous shortcomings, including counterintelligence concerns, classified leaks, puzzling legal processes and inappropriate or questionable behavior" by both the Trump campaign and Hillary Clinton's campaign.
In the final document, the committee said that "there is no evidence that Trump associates were involved in the theft or publication of Clinton campaign-related emails". But overall, it found, there was no conspiracy to work with the foreign operatives attacking the election. The summary also said that the committee agreed with a number of the intelligence community's prior judgments on the matter, "except with respect to [Russian President Vladimir] Putin's supposed preference for candidate Trump".
The house committee was bitterly divided.
In a statement shortly following the Friday release, Schiff slammed his Republican colleagues for choosing "not to seriously investigate - or even see, when in plain sight - evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation, instead adopting the role of defense counsel for key investigation witnesses". Clinton Campaign paid for Opposition Research obtained from Russia- Wow! "Witch Hunt!" he tweeted.
The fact of the attack itself is confirmed, described in detail and characterized as part of a decades-long policy by Russian Federation to try to shape the political environment in the West via the use of "active measures". Republicans say they will pressure intelligence agencies to be able to release more information.

"The committee also found the Trump campaign's periodic praise for and communications with WikiLeaks - a hostile foreign organization - to be highly objectionable and inconsistent with USA national security interests." the report went on. The section on what the committee found on the cyberattacks is mostly redacted.
"The content of the report changed daily, including on key assessments, demonstrating the majority's fundamentally flawed approach to the investigation and the superficial and political nature of its conclusions." he said in a statement. The FBI's conduct in dealing with victims of the Russian hacking, for example, is described as "largely inadequate". There was no collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russian people. The House committee says it found no additional evidence of collusion.
Mr. Conaway said the committee had pledged to be "as transparent as possible" with the report.
Rep. Ted Lieu (D-Calif.) said on Saturday that the House Intelligence Committee's now-defunct investigation into Russia's role in the 2016 presidential election may have been a "waste of time".
