Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee have reached the conclusion there is "no evidence" of collusion between Donald Trump's presidential campaign and the Russian government, CNN's Manu Raju reports. Committee member Rep. Mike Conaway is expected to announce Monday that the body will now begin writing its final report on its findings, CNN reported. He declined to put a timeline on when the report would be made public, as the committee intends to submit it to the intelligence community for declassification beforehand.

Democrats have previously said that the Republican-led investigation was not as extensive as they would have liked and that more witnesses needed to be interviewed.

The committee has interviewed more than four dozen witnesses so far, the last being former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski. "Republicans and Democrats on the House committee have said they would like to produce a bipartisan report, but relations on the panel have deteriorated to the point where such a task may be hard".

CNN reported that the partisanship likely runs so deep that the committee will release two competing reports.

The GOP majority on the House panel still plans to produce a final report in the next few weeks that is expected to conclude that the Trump campaign did not collude with Russians who interfered in the election. Republicans would likely accuse Democrats of partisanship if the Russian Federation investigation was reopened.

"You use subpoenas when you think you can actually get something from them, and we're not particularly confident that the subpoena process will get us any more information that we had", Conaway said Monday.

Even while he had stepped aside, Nunes upset Democrats by continuing to issue subpoenas for documents and witnesses. Several witnesses including Bannon and White House Communications Director Hope Hicks curtailed their testimony and refused to answer questions about their time in Trump's White House. Senate Intelligence Chairman Richard Burr has said he's separating out the election security issues for the 2018 primary season while the committee continues to investigate questions about collusion and the 2016 election.

The committee's traditional bipartisanship began unraveling in the spring of a year ago, when Chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., took a secret trip to White House grounds to review information gathered by unnamed sources purporting to show that President Trump was under surveillance by the Obama administration during the 2016 campaign.

The three congressional investigations are operating separately from one being conducted by special counsel Robert Mueller.
