US House Democrats sign letter urging action against Russian Federation

13 March 2018

"We found none", Mr Conaway said in an interview on Fox News Channel. "We're not dealing in fiction, we're dealing in facts and we found no evidence of any collusion". "Republicans and Democrats on the House committee have said they would like to produce a bipartisan report, but relations on the panel have deteriorated to the point where such a task may be hard".

The Intelligence Committee did find, however, that Russian Federation took active measures to meddle in the 2016 election, and that the majority expects it to undertake similar measures again. Among the witnesses who refused to answer crucial questions: Donald Trump Jr., Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Trump Organization attorney Michael Cohen, former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski, and former White House communications director Hope Hicks. The Senate panel is expected to issue findings on the more controversial issue of coordination between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation at a later date. "With the 2018 primary elections already underway and just 238 days until the mid-term elections in November, it's important that we give the American people the information they need to arm themselves against Russian attempts to influence our elections". Conaway, however, stopped short of saying there was "collusion" between Clinton's campaign and the Russians, something the President has alleged.

Richard Sherman Signs With 49ers: "I'm Vengeful In That Way"
While it's unknown exactly the paycut Seattle wanted Sherman to take, it's surely less than $10 million for the 2018 season. The 49ers have skin in the game. "Now, if I play the way I know I'm capable of playing, I know I'm going to get paid".

In addition to subpoenas and witnesses, Democrats have long raised issues about looking into Trump's finances, something the committee had not probed.

He also said there was no evidence that anything "untoward" happened at a 2016 meeting between members of the Trump campaign and Russians, though he called it ill-advised.

Arsenal blow away Watford
We focus on performances and when the pressure is on like this you have to show that strong organisation and unite, not divide. When Mustafi headed home Mesut Ozil's inviting free-kick he scored the Gunners' 1000th home goal in the Premier League era.

The committee's partisan split grew deeper in February, when Republicans released the "Nunes memo" alleging that the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Justice Department abused their surveillance authority to target Trump campaign adviser Carter Page in 2016.

As a result of the controversy around the memos, the committee's two wings have become so intractable that CNN reported the committee is likely to produce two separate reports - one from the Republicans that denies that any collusion took place, and another from Democrats that argues that some form of collusion may have occurred. Dan Coats, the Director of National Intelligence, insisted to a Senate hearing last week that the administration is engaged on the issue of election security, and said the Treasury Department would announce sanctions on Russian Federation as soon as this week.

Tomb Raider 1, 2 and 3 Getting FREE Remasters on Steam
The team has already finished the PC versions of Tomb Raider 1 and 2, and is now working on the remaster of Tomb Raider 3. Developer RealtechVR has taken care in the recent years of porting the old Tomb Raider games to mobile.

Still, only the Senate Intelligence Committee appears to be pushing forward at full speed on its probe, as Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley is preparing to release transcripts of the committee's interviews with participants of the June 2016 Trump Tower meeting - a potential sign the committee is done investigating that matter.
