House Republicans on the Intelligence Committee ended the long investigation into possible Russian meddling in the 2016 election. It has officially been concluded that there was "no evidence of collusion, coordination, or conspiracy between the Trump campaign and the Russians."
Although Republicans agreed in January that there was an attempt by Russia to interfere with the election, there was no evidence they were specifically trying to help Donald Trump win the presidency.
The panel reported that 73 witness interviews were conducted, nine hearings were held, over 300,000 documents were reviewed. Russian cyber attacks on political organizations were found, along with Russia's use of social media to influence the American public.

Democrats obviously aren't reacting well to the news they've been expecting. The belief of the left is that the investigation was ended prematurely, and did not include interviews of important witnesses. Republicans decided against the use of subpoena in certain instances in order to force witnesses to answer important questions. Steve Bannon refused to answer questions after he was subpoenaed, but was not held in contempt of Congress.
