"We found perhaps some bad judgment, inappropriate meetings, inappropriate judgment in taking meetings". But he said that the committee did not turn up any evidence of collusion, arguing the promoter who organized the meeting had exaggerated what the Russians would provide.

Democrats and Republicans on the committee have interviewed the same 73 witnesses and viewed the same 300,000-plus documents, according to the tally Conaway gave reporters on Monday.

The committee's report will conclude that they agree with 98% of the intelligence community's January 2017 assessment that Russian Federation meddled in the 2016 election, according to a committee aide.

The public will not see the report until Democrats have reviewed it and the intelligence community has decided what information can become public, a process that could take weeks.

The committee reportedly interviewed its final witness, former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski, last week. The Senate panel is expected to issue findings on the more controversial issue of coordination between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation at a later date. Conaway, however, stopped short of saying there was "collusion" between Clinton's campaign and the Russians, something the President has alleged.

The Republican report will also say how "anti-Trump research" made its way from Russian sources to the Clinton campaign through the opposition research dossier on Trump and Russia.

When former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon refused to answer questions even after being subpoenaed, Republicans would not take action to hold him in contempt of Congress, Democrats said.

Committee Democrats have also clamored for the panel to issue several subpoenas for witnesses who either have ignored the committee's requests to appear or given incomplete answers during their interviews with the panel. Dan Coats, the Director of National Intelligence, insisted to a Senate hearing last week that the administration is engaged on the issue of election security, and said the Treasury Department would announce sanctions on Russian Federation as soon as this week.

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 Senate Intelligence Committee is preparing to put out recommendations and hold a hearing on election security this month.

In addition to the investigations by the House and Senate intelligence committees, the Senate Judiciary Committee has conducted a more limited probe and is not expected to issue a final report.
