Chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee Richard Burr recently revealed that there is no evidence for collusion between President Donald Trump and Russia.

Burr spoke out about the ongoing investigation into collusion between Trump’s 2016 campaign and the Russian government. Although the committee will soon release the conclusion to the investigation, Burr is already announcing there is no evidence to suggest foul play.

“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 told CBS in an interview.

The lawmaker also said that he hoped that people who see the results would understand that the committee made their determination based on facts.

“I’m speaking to what I hope is the 60 percent in the middle that are saying, ‘Give me the facts that I need to make a determination in this one particular instance — what happened.’ And that’s what our focus is,” Burr said.

After the comments were released, President Trump tweeted out his happiness that the two-year investigation seems to be coming to an end.

“Highly respected Senator Richard Burr, Chairman of Senate Intelligence, said today that, after an almost two year investigation, he saw no evidence of Russia collusion,” Trump tweeted. “‘We don’t have anything that would suggest there was collusion by the Trump campaign and Russia.’ Thank you!”
