The House Intelligence Committee's Russian Federation investigation is coming to a close, according to a CNN report published Monday afternoon.

The Journal reported that members of the two parties are unlikely to come to a consensus on the investigation's central question - whether President Donald Trump's campaign colluded with Russian Federation in its election interference operation during the 2016 election. He has said he has seen "more than circumstantial evidence" of collusion but has refused to explain what evidence he has seen. "Republicans and Democrats on the House committee have said they would like to produce a bipartisan report, but relations on the panel have deteriorated to the point where such a task may be hard".

Two other congressional committees, the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence and the Senate Judiciary Committee, are conducting their own investigations into Russian meddling.

A spokesperson for Conaway declined to comment to the news outlet.

Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, a Republican released a controversial memo that alleged misconduct at the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Justice Department with regard to obtaining a FISA surveillance warrant in order to surveil the communications of a former Trump associate.

"The report's completion will signify the closure of one chapter in the Committee's robust oversight of the threat posed by Moscow-which began well before the investigation and will continue thereafter", Conaway said.

CNN reported that the partisanship likely runs so deep that the committee will release two competing reports.

"Republican conclusions, Democratic conclusions and no consensus about whether or not the Trump campaign worked with the Russians", Raju reported.

The report also included more than 25 recommendations for Congress and the executive branch to improve election security, US government response to cyberattacks, campaign finance transparency, and counterintelligence practices related to political campaigns and unauthorized disclosures. Conaway and Schiff do plan to speak on Monday, another source said.

Democrats also sought subpoenas for the committee's last two witnesses, outgoing White House communications director Hope Hicks and former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski, but Republicans did not issue them. Once Manafort was indicted in Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation, the committee decided not to call him for an interview.
