Can we finally put the whole ‘Muh Russian Hacking’ thing to rest? The House has found no links between the President and Russia.
CBS has more:
“House Intelligence chairman Devin Nunes says Congress should not begin a McCarthy-style investigation based on news reports that a few Americans with ties to President Donald Trump had contacted Russians during the 2016 presidential campaign.
“We just cannot go on a witch hunt,” Nunes told reporters.
The Trump administration has pushed back against reports that Trump aides were in contact with Russian intelligence officials during the 2016 presidential campaign. The White House asked Nunes to call a reporter to dispute a report in another publication. On Monday, Nunes dismissed the communication with the Trump administration as consisting of a White House communications person “passing me a name and a phone number.”
Nunes said he knows of no evidence that Trump aides were in contact with Russian agents. He told reporters that his committee has finished determining the scope of the investigation, and it will now go on to receive evidence. Nunes is leading one of three congressional investigations into Trump’s Russia ties.”
