The House Intelligence Committee voted Thursday to approve a GOP-authored report stating there is no evidence President Trump or his affiliates colluded with the Russian government during the 2016 U.S. election.

While the vote ends the Russia probe for the panel’s GOP majority, it only stoked the fury of Democrats, who have denounced their colleagues’ findings. The document – whose public release is probably weeks away – also criticizes the U.S. intelligence community’s assessment that Russia sought to help Trump win the presidency.
