Republicans ended their investigation into Russia's 2016 election meddling last month, concluding they found no evidence that Trump's team had colluded with Russians.

I am a lawyer, and I am an informant, ' she told NBC News, the New York Times reported. Specifically, Veselnitskaya said she has been "actively communicating" with the office of Yuri Chaika, the Russian prosecutor general and a top Kremlin official, since 2013.

The committee outlined "poor judgement" practiced by both campaigns, though, citing the June 2016 meeting at Trump Tower between members of the Trump campaign and Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya "who falsely purported to have damaging information on the Clinton campaign demonstrated poor judgement".

Nevertheless, Manafort's ties to the Pro-Moscow Ukrainian government remain a key area of interest for investigators, and money laundering charges against him relates to his work in that area.

The 253-page report even blames the "establishment" - not Trump - for the hiring of aides with 'pro-Russia views'. The report, which was said to be based on interviews with almost 75 witnesses and a scouring of hundreds of thousands of documents, also concludes that any attempts of Trump associates to try to forge a relationship with Russian Federation were either unsanctioned by Trump or didn't pan out.

The Republican-authored report - released over Democratic objections - stated the committee "found no evidence that the Trump campaign colluded, coordinated, or conspired with the Russian government".

Democrats sharply contested the findings in their very own rebuttal, whereas accusing Republicans of not conducting a critical inquiry.

The investigation began with bipartisan promise but ultimately succumbed to factional squabbling.

President Trump, reacting to the report moments after its release, hailed its findings and said the Russia "Witch Hunt" must end, in an apparent swipe at Special Counsel Robert Mueller's ongoing investigation.

The House panel did find that Russian Federation sought to sow discord in the US through cyberattacks and social media. In a press release, Chairman Devin Nunes, R-California, referred to as the omissions "extreme and unjustified" and mentioned additionally they included publicly out there info.

Trump has repeatedly said there was 'no collusion'. "Numerous redactions include information that is publicly available, such as witness names and information previously declassified", investigation leader Rep. Mike Conaway, R-Texas, complained in a statement Friday. He said numerous blacked out details include information already public such as witness names and previously declassified information.
