Many are eagerly awaiting special counsel Robert Mueller's final report on the Russia investigation, which could be released in the coming months.

After two years of investigating more than 200 interviews and more than 300,000 pages of documents reviewed the chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, Richard Burr, said they have found "no evidence" of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.

The Republican Chairman made the comments in an Interview to CBS News last week:

"If we write a report based upon the facts that we have, then we don't have anything that would suggest there was collusion by the trump campaign and Russia," Burr said.

President trump tweeted later, "No collusion between trump and russia! Is anybody really surprised by this?"

The Senate Intelligence Committee's work is just one of many congressional committees looking at possible collusion between Trump associates and Russia.

Last march the Republican-led House Intelligence Committee ended its controversial Russia investigation and concluded there was, "noo evidence of collusion."

The house is now under Democratic control and the new chairman of the house intelligence committee, Adam Schiff, said he wants to re-open the Russian investigation.

The Senate Intelligence Committee's investigation is not over yet and Burr's comments do not exonerate the president since the committee has not come out with a final report.
