Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report into Russian interference in the 2016 US presidential election is handed off to the justice department.
- Willian Barr, the attorney general appointed by President Trump, read the Mueller report and quickly concluded: there was no collusion between president-elect Trump and the Russians, and there was no obstruction of justice.
- The Mueller report was conclusive with regard to collusion: Mueller’s investigation did not find that the Trump campaign or anyone associated with it conspired or coordinated with Russia in the 2016 election.
- But, Mueller’s report was not conclusive with regard to obstruction: Mueller found obstructive actions but did not draw a conclusion about whether or not to prosecute them.
