The House Intelligence Committee has voted on party lines to release the report on the Russia investigation, and now the probe is formally ending. The report finds that there was no evidence of collusion between Trump associates and the Kremlin and recommends rooting out intel leaks with "mandatory polygraphs" for those with top secret security clearances, per Politico.

What now: The intelligence community must review report to redact classified information before publicly releasing it, per Politico. The Democrats will continue their investigation, but they don’t have subpoena power without the Republicans on board, per CNN.

The report’s other conclusions:

  • The possible attempts to set up a back-channel with Trump associates “suggest the absence of collusion during the campaign, since the communication associated with collusion would have rendered such a 'back channel' unnecessary.”
  • Obama’s intel director James Clapper provided “inconsistent testimony” about contacts with the media.
  • Carter Page provided an “incomplete” account of his trip in 2016 to Moscow.
  • Trump associates had “ill-advised” contacts with WikiLeaks.

Rep. Adam Schiff pointed out today that there are relevant reports to the Russia investigation that have come out since Republicans ended the probe. His list:

  • News that other countries talk about exploiting Jared Kushner and his company.
  • Reports that George Nader, an advisor to the UAE with ties to Trump, was cooperating with the Mueller probe.
  • Reports that Roger Stone was warned about the DNC email leak.
  • Reports that the Special Counsel was looking into the Trump Organization’s links with Russia.
  • Reports that former FBI Andrew McCabe kept memos of conversations with Trump.
  • News about Cambridge Analytica’s role in the misuse of data on Facebook of 50 million American’s and its role in the 2016 election.

Facebook boycott organizers share details on their Zuckerberg meeting

Facebook is in the midst of the largest ad boycott in its history, with nearly 1,000 brands having stopped paid advertising in July because they feel Facebook hasn't done enough to remove hate speech from its namesake app and Instagram.

Axios Re:Cap spoke with the boycott's four main organizers, who met on Tuesday with CEO Mark Zuckerberg and other top Facebook executives, to learn why they organized the boycott, what they took from the meeting, and what comes next.

Civil rights leaders blasted Facebook's top executives shortly after speaking with them on Tuesday, saying that the tech giant's leaders "failed to meet the moment" and were "more interested in having a dialogue than producing outcomes."

Why it matters: The likely fallout from the meeting is that the growing boycott of Facebook's advertising platform, which has reached nearly 1000 companies in less than a month, will extend longer than previously anticipated, deepening Facebook's public relations nightmare.

House Minority Whip Steve Scalise’s PAC is inviting lobbyists to attend a four-day “Summer Meeting” at Disney World's Polynesian Village in Florida, all but daring donors to swallow their concern about coronavirus and contribute $10,000 to his leadership PAC.

Why it matters: Scalise appears to be the first House lawmakers to host an in-person destination fundraiser since the severity of pandemic became clear. The invite for the “Summer Meeting” for the Scalise Leadership Fund, obtained by Axios, makes no mention of COVID-19.
