Attorney General William Barr Releases Summary Of Mueller Report

Special Counsel Mueller's Trump-Russia Probe Report Reviewed By Attorney General William Barr

Attorney General William Barr sent a four-page letter to Congressional leaders outlining the principal findings from special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation. Barr wrote that while the "report does not conclude that the President committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him."

"For each of the relevant actions investigated, the report sets out evidence on both sides of the question and leave unresolved what the special counsel views as 'difficult issues' of law and fact concerning whether the President's actions and intent could be viewed as obstruction," Barr wrote.

Barr, along with Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, felt that the evidence gathered by Mueller's team was “not sufficient” to prosecute President Donald Trump for obstruction of justice.

Barr says that the investigation concluded that the Trump campaign did not work with Russia to influence the 2016 presidential election.

“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 US Presidential Election.”
