Democrats on the House Intelligence Committee will release a report of their own on the committee's Russia investigation, according to Rep. Adam Schiff.
Republicans released a draft report on the investigation on Monday in which they claimed they had found no evidence of collusion between President Donald Trump and Russia during the 2016 presidential election.
The Democrats, however, claim that they have found "ample" evidence.
One Republican on the committee said his party had "gone completely off the rails" with regard to the investigation.

Trump finally issued a statement of solidarity with the UK on Tuesday morning, saying that if the UK believed Russia was behind the attack, "I would certainly take that finding as fact."
