US President Donald Trump said that the Senate intelligence committee did not find evidence of his deal with Russia. He wrote about this on Twitter.
“Senator Richard Burr, the head of the intelligence committee, just said that after almost two years, more than two hundred interviews and thousands of documents, they did not find any secret collusion between Trump and Russia,” the American president wrote. Trump also wondered if anyone was surprised by such conclusions.
Earlier, in an interview with CBS , Burr said that to date no evidence of collusion was found. “If we write a report based on the facts we have, then there is nothing that could mean that there was an agreement between Trump’s campaign and Russia,” said the senator. Trump on Twitter thanked him for these words.
At the end of April 2018, the Intelligence Affairs Committee of the House of Representatives issued a report stating that Trump’s collusion with the Russian government in the 2016 elections was not found. At the same time, according to congressmen, the main goal of Moscow was to introduce mistrust and division into American society – and she succeeded. The authors of the report also identified several “short-sighted and ill-considered decisions” in Trump’s campaigns and his rival, Democratic Party candidate Hillary Clinton. On February 7 of this year, committee chairman Adam Schiff announced the resumption of an investigation into Trump.
