United States Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee said on Monday that they have found no evidence of collusion between President Donald Trump’s election campaign and Russia, and will end the year-long investigation.

The committees also found that Russian President Vladimir Putin was not trying to assist Mr. Trump win the 2016 presidential election, opposite to the findings of the U.S. intelligence community.

The bipartisan, but Republican Party-ruled House intelligence group, has been deeply split along party lines, and Democratic Party lawmakers will likely voice extreme disappointment to the development.

Republican investigators did not consult with Democrats on the committees findings, reported U.S. media.

The probe group’s Republicans said Russians did meddle in the elections to create chaos, but they disagreed with the intelligence community’s assessment that they aimed to assist Trump.

The decision to end the assessment arrived as the special counsel, Robert Mueller, accelerates his investigation.
