Republican-dominated House panel finds no evidence of collusion between Donald Trump's campaign and Russia

Washington: A Republican-dominated House panel announced on Monday that their investigation into alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 election found no collusion by Donald Trump's presidential campaign.

"We have found no evidence of collusion, coordination or conspiracy between the Trump campaign and the Russians," said the preliminary report issued by the majority Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee.

The panel also said it accepted US intelligence's conclusion that Russians had sought to interfere in the election, but rejected the idea that Moscow had specifically attempted to boost Trump's White House effort.
