(CNN)The House Intelligence Committee on Friday released a redacted version of the Republican report on the committee's year-long Russia investigation, in which, GOP members say, they found no evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia and disputed the intelligence community's findings that Vladimir Putin tried to help elect Donald Trump President.
The committee released the report with redactions from the intelligence community, along with a redacted Democratic dissent disputing the Republican conclusions.
Rep. Mike Conaway, the Texas Republican who led the committee's Russia probe, said in a statement that the intelligence community made "overzealous redactions" to the report, and the committee plans to challenge them to get more of the report declassified.

"Many of the redactions include information that is publicly available, such as witness names and information previously declassified," Conaway said

The establishment has gotten away with impeding a duly elected president long enough. Mueller needs to wrap this up and declare victory for his non-Russian collusion indictments and move on.

So, they agree with all of our intel agencies that they could find no evidence of collusion between Trump and Russia.

Wow! Republicans found, and let's parse here, that the Trump campaign (a huge body of people) did not collude (collusion in itself is not a criminal act) with Russia and that Putin did not try to help elect Trump when every fucking intelligence agency that spoke on the topic clearly stated that Russia attempted to help sway the election.

Sorry House GOPers, but that is a sorry sack of dogshit of a story.

in the process they redacted the Dems dissent and, big surprised, managed to set up a narrative against Hillary Clinton for the midterms.

In modern day cultural references terms they essentially told Hillary "I wish I knew how to quit you".

So true. Once we get the Senate back, i hope we don't let him pick a Supreme Court Justice either. I Really want to give you back as good as you gave.
