Attorney General William Barr says that Special counsel Robert Mueller did not find Donald Trump’s campaign or associates conspired with Russia. Barr also states that Mueller also did not have sufficient evidence to prosecute obstruction of justice however, did not exonerate Trump.
In a letter sent to Congress, Barr states that “The special counsel’s investigation did not find that the Trump campaign or anyone associated with it conspired or coordinated with Russia in its efforts to influence the 2016 U.S. Presidential Election.”
Democrats have stated that they would like the Attorney General to release the full report and not just a summary from the Justice Department.
Mueller’s nearly 2-year investigation ended on Friday. The investigation led to charges against 37 defendants, which included six Trump associates. Seven defendants have pleaded guilty and Trump’s former campaign chairman Paul Manafort, was convicted at trial.
Donald Trump tweeted his pleasure of the findings.
While Mueller’s investigation is over, several criminal investigations are still ongoing including Southern District of New York’s investigation into his businesses.
