House votes to end Trump administration’s investigation into Russia

The House voted Wednesday to end a probe into whether President Donald Trump’s campaign colluded with Russia to influence the 2016 presidential election.

House Republicans voted 219-191 to formally end the congressional investigation into possible collusion between Trump’s presidential campaign and the Kremlin.

The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee said it will be closed for 60 days as part of its investigation into the 2016 election.

The panel’s chairman, Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah), said in a statement Wednesday that the panel would not return to committee meetings until the House completes its investigation.

The Senate approved a measure to impeach Trump by a voice vote on Wednesday, just hours after Trump announced his resignation from office.

Trump said in the Oval Office on Wednesday he plans to step down from the presidency in January.
