US President Donald Trump has immediately reacted to the document, titled "Report on Russian Active Measure," by the House Intelligence Committee, concluding that there was no collusion between the then-candidate's campaign and Moscow during the 2016 presidential election. POTUS took to Twitter to comment on the freshly released report, saying that the investigation should be immediately ended, as according to the findings, “the Clinton Campaign paid for Opposition Research obtained from Russia.”
Just Out: House Intelligence Committee Report released. “No evidence” that the Trump Campaign “colluded, coordinated or conspired with Russia.” Clinton Campaign paid for Opposition Research obtained from Russia- Wow! A total Witch Hunt! MUST END NOW!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) 27 апреля 2018 г.
"The Committee also found that the Clinton campaign and the DNC, using a series of cutouts and intermediaries to obscure their roles, paid for opposition research on Trump obtained from Russian sources, including a litany of claims by high-ranking current and former Russian government officials," the report said. "Some of this opposition research was used to produce sixteen memos, which comprise what has become known as the Steele dossier."
The US President has denounced the investigation into Russia's alleged interference from the very beginning, consistently calling it a "witch hunt." Moscow has also repeatedly denied the allegations of meddling, dismissing them as "absurd."
