The Democrats continue to insist there was collusion between Trump and the Russians during the 2016 election.
According to Reuters, Democratic members of the U.S. House of Representatives Intelligence Committee said on Tuesday they would keep investigating Russia and the 2016 U.S. election, despite a decision by Republicans on the panel to shut down the probe.
“We are going to do our best to continue our work. There are individuals who want to cooperate with our committee and share information, and will continue to do so,” said Representative Adam Schiff, the committee’s top Democrat.
“We will be putting together a report that will set out for the country what evidence we have seen to date,” he said.
Schiff and other committee Democrats held a news conference a day after Republicans, who control Congress, said the full panel’s investigation was over and they had found no evidence of collusion between President Donald Trump’s campaign and Moscow’s efforts to influence the vote.
