Russia investigation wraps up but Dems keep digging

"Rocky" RussiansA U.S. House panel investigating Russian meddling in U.S. elections has released its final report and wrapped up its business – sort of.

As per usual of late, House Intelligence Committee Republicans and Democrats issued separate reports last week with the GOP version declaring that there is "no evidence" of collusion between President Donald Trump, or his campaign, and the Russians.

Chairman Mike Conway of Texas is complaining, however, that too much of the report is blacked out.

Rep. Adam SchiffSandy Rios, director of governmental affairs for the American Family Association, tells OneNewsNow that she, too, was surprised at the level of redacted information.

"Members of that committee are pretty upset about that," she advises, "because it's public information, much of it, and it makes the case that they're making."

Rios, a conservative veteran of Washington, D.C. politics, says the so-called "Deep State" is actively working against the Trump administration from within the federal government, and she suspects that the heavily redacted information is part of that effort.

Trump and Putin at G20 (July 2017)"To obstruct and prevent," she says, "the American people from actually knowing what's happened with this whole Russia-collusion-with-Trump investigation."

Even the Democrat committee report was unable to claim collusion between Trump and the Russians, although there is a demand for more answers and a vow to keep digging for political dirt.

In fact, Democrat Minority leader Adam Schiff (pictured above) is claiming – without evidence – that Trump is being blackmailed by Russia.

"Problem is," replies Rios, "we have citizens who don't pay attention and they don't know that, and Adam Schiff is a great liar."
