NBC News reports that the GOP-led House Intelligence Committee’s investigation into Russian election interference overlooked most of the contacts that occurred between Trump campaign officials and Russians, according to a newly released report by the left-leaning Center for American Progress’s Moscow Project.
The report said “at least 22 high-ranking campaign officials and Trump advisers were aware of the contacts with Russia-linked operatives during the campaign and transition.”
“None of these contacts were ever reported to the proper authorities. Instead, the Trump team tried to cover up every single one of them,” the report added.
“The American people deserve answers.”
The Hill added:
Earlier this month, Rep. Mike Conaway (R-Texas) — who was leading the House Intelligence Committee’s probe into Russia’s election interference — announced the end of the investigation and laid out a number of conclusions reached by GOP members in their initial report.
Among those conclusions was the assertion that there is no evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.
The report drew strong criticism from committee Democrats, who said the committee came to no such conclusion.
