FILE: WASHINGTON, DC - MAY 23: Rep. Mike Conaway (R-TX), now leading the House Intelligence investigation after Devin Nunes was forced to recuse himself, arrives for a hearing featuring former Director of the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) John Brennan at the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence on Capitol Hill, May 23, 2017 in Washington, DC. 

Rep. Mike Conaway, R-Texas, announced that the House Intelligence Committee's interview phase of its investigation into collusion and Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential campaign has concluded. Conaway told reporters Monday, "We found no evidence that the Trump campaign or anyone associated with it colluded with the Russians."

The Intelligence Committee did find, however, that Russia took active measures to meddle in the 2016 election, and that the majority expects it to undertake similar measures again. Now, Conaway said, the committee will move on to write its report, the first draft of which the GOP majority will share with the Democratic minority tomorrow. Conaway said that he would seek Democrats' input to edit the report, andsaid he expected some of the process would be bipartisan, "with precious little pushback." He also conceded that Democrats "may take a different interpretation of the facts or want to add a different conclusion."

Conaway has led the committee's investigation since Chairman Devin Nunes stepped away from the probe during an Office of Congressional Ethics probe into whether he had disclosed confidential information.
