I mean, it was just a matter of time.
After the Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee decided to wrap up its Russia probe and issue a report that will state there was no collusion between the Trump campaign and Russians, President Donald Trump went ALL CAPS with his celebratory tweet.
THE HOUSE INTELLIGENCE COMMITTEE HAS, AFTER A 14 MONTH LONG IN-DEPTH INVESTIGATION, FOUND NO EVIDENCE OF COLLUSION OR COORDINATION BETWEEN THE TRUMP CAMPAIGN AND RUSSIA TO INFLUENCE THE 2016 PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION.

As you can see in the tweet above, the president made sure to highlight the main takeaway from the GOP members of the committee — they “FOUND NO EVIDENCE OF COLLUSION OR COORDINATION.”
UPDATE – 9:30 p.m. EST: Ranking Democrat Adam Schiff has this to say in response to the president.
This was not the finding of the House Intelligence Committee, Mr. President, but only a statement by its GOP members, who lack the courage to stand up to a President of their own party when the national interest necessitates it. https://t.co/ZC1T5BUKS1
