Republicans in the House closed the Intelligence Committee's investigation into Russian election interference on Monday, declaring that they had found no evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia. Democrats were furious, countering that the committee's work was not done and accusing Republicans of sending a "green light" for Russia to interfere in future elections.
