    The committee voted along party lines in March to formally close the Russia investigation, after just more than one year. Democrats have continued to press ahead with their own investigation, which included an interview just this week with Cambridge Analytica whistleblower Christopher Wylie.

    “Republicans chose not to seriously investigate — or even see, when in plain sight — evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia, instead adopting the role of defense counsel for key investigation witnesses,” Rep. Adam Schiff, the committee’s top Democrat, said in a statement. “There is no denying the abundant evidence that the Trump campaign sought, and was eager to accept, the assistance of a hostile foreign power bent on interfering in our election.”

    The final report, drafted by the Republican majority, does criticize some Trump campaign officials for taking “ill-advised” meetings with Russians, some with links directly to the Kremlin. It acknowledges that Donald Trump Jr., Jared Kushner and Paul Manafort expected to receive “but did not ultimately obtain” information from a Kremlin-linked lawyer that could damage the Clinton campaign. It also notes that Donald Trump Jr. “briefly met” a Russian government official at National Rifle Association conference, but says there was “no evidence” that they discussed the presidential election.

    The report does strongly criticize the Obama administration for in its view failing to adequately confront Russian efforts to meddle in the U.S. election. It also repeats charges of a memo drafted by Nunes that the Justice Department misled a judge in its effort to obtain a secret surveillance warrant on Carter Page, a Trump foreign policy aide.

    According to a Texas Health and Human Services Commission report published Thursday, Healthy Texas Women increased its total number of clients served from 70,336 in 2016 to 122,406 in 2017. The Family Planning Program increased its clients from 38,404 in 2016 to 96,990 in 2017. Overall, Texas served 29 percent more women in one year.

    But because of new methods of gathering data and changes to the programs, it's unclear whether more women are receiving the health care they need.

    "Have we finally climbed out of the hole the state dug in 2011?" asked Stacey Pogue, a senior policy analyst with the Center for Public Policy Priorities, a left-leaning think tank. "That's the question we can't answer with that data."

    In 2011, Texas removed Planned Parenthood from Healthy Texas Women — then known as the Women's Health Program — to keep it from receiving public money. Some of the organization's clinics perform abortions, but they do not use taxpayer money to do so.

    The move violated a federal law allowing Medicaid users to see the provider of their choice, so the Obama administration took about million from the state. Texas has asked the Trump administration to restore Medicaid funding under a waiver, while allowing the exclusion of Planned Parenthood.

    In 2011, the Legislature also slashed .6 million from the state's 1.5 million family planning budget.
