3:17 am
twenty sixteen election say they have found no evidence of collusion but the top intelligence democrat has disputed that claim saying there is clear evidence russia tried to help in the twenty sixteen election that speak to john hendren in washington john why does the committee say it's ending its investigation willfully this is the report that came out it's just a short one by the house select committee on intelligence as one of three investigations into possible collusion between the trump campaign and the government of russia there's also one in the senate and of course there is the one of the independent counsel's investigation headed by robert mueller well this one is ended concluding that there was no evidence of collusion the committee said that in fact these are the majority of republicans on the committee the democrats won't even see this report for several hours now they say that the russians appeared to
3:18 am
take active measures to try to meddle in the u.s. election but that they showed no preference for donald trump in doing so that flies directly in the face of u.s. intelligence reports u.s. intelligence officials have testified before congress on the record saying that in fact the russians did meddle in the u.s. investigation and they did so specifically in order to help donald trump and to hurt democrat hillary clinton nevertheless this committee says there was no evidence of collusion that is despite the fact that robert miller's independent investigation has indicted thirteen russians and several members of the trump campaign so there's likely to be a lot of talk of partisanship when this is all over and that has already begun fully and what has been the reaction from the democrats and other critics of the trumpet ministration to this. well the democrats say that you can't find something if you don't really want to look for it and they say that's what happened in this case that house investigation was by far the most partisan of the three going on
3:19 am
right now they broke down between republicans and democrats arguing over separate memos as to whether the f.b.i. was biased in the information it presented the democrats said that some of the people from the white house who answered almost no questions with any substance should have been subpoenaed and there should have been a follow up but there's been some very strong statements by democrats kean castro a house member a democrat from texas said this was a stunning betrayal of the american people a republican is that it was a there was a breakdown of all who were in this committee and the the ranking democrat on that committee adam schiff a democrat from washington state said this was a capitulation he said republicans placed the interests of protecting the president over protecting the country and he said history will judge its actions harshly so there's likely to be a lot of partisan bickering after this investigation but the one that people are
3:20 am
really looking to to possibly come out with some serious charges in this investigation is the one headed by independent counsel robert mueller thank you for that john john hendren live for us in washington. and saying in the u.s. president trump is being accused of borrowing to pressure from the n.r.a. after backing away from measures which would raise the minimum wage for buying guns this comes after the white house announced it's setting up a commission to deal with gun violence a commission or pushed on teachers in classrooms kimberly harkat has more from washington. after weeks of student protests across the country calling for restrictions on gun ownership the white house has responded it's setting up a federal commission on school safety rolling out proposals the trumpet really strace and says will reduce gun violence. among the ideas of providing firearms training for teachers a move that's been sharply criticized by national education groups missing is

something president donald trump promise in the days following last month's florida school shooting raising the age limit for buying assault rifles from eighteen to twenty one as is the case with handguns were going to work or getting the age up to twenty one instead of eighteen the president's critics accuse him of backing off the age limit proposal under pressure from the nation's largest gun lobby group the n.r.a. on friday it filed a federal lawsuit challenging age restrictions on gun purchases put in place last week by florida politicians in a tweet on monday trump acknowledged his policy shift explaining he was watching court cases and rulings before acting states are making this decision. and just a day before the school safety panel was announced the president appeared to mock the idea of commissions suggesting they look good but are a waste of time we care just keep setting up blue ribbon committees with your wife
