AG William Barr announced on Sunday that Special Counsel Robert Mueller concluded there was not conspiracy between the Trump campaign and Russia.
“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,” Barr said in a letter to lawmakers.
The Trump campaign didn’t conspire or knowingly coordinate with the Internet Research Agency to conduct information and social media campaigns to sow discord and interfere in the election nor did it conspire or coordinate with the Russian government during efforts to hack Democrats, Mueller determined.
Special Counsel Robert Mueller didn’t issue a conclusion on whether the president obstructed justice during the 2-year long investigation, leaving it to the AG to decide. Mueller said that “while this report does not conclude that the President committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him.”
William Barr revealed that he and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein have found that there is not “sufficient” evidence to determine whether Trump obstructed justice.
“After reviewing the Special Counsel’s final report on these issues; consulting with Department officials, including the Office of Legal Counsel; and applying the principles of federal prosecution that guide our charging decisions, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and I have concluded that the evidence developed during the Special Counsel’s investigation is not sufficient to establish that the President committed an obstruction-of-justice offense,” Barr wrote.
