The long-awaited Mueller’s report into whether US President Donald Trump’s campaign colluded with Russia to help the Republican defeat his Democratic opponent, Hillary Clinton, s nearly two years of investigation ended that President Trump’s campaign did not conspire with Russia during the 2016 election.
Even though Mueller’s findings were inconclusive over whether Trump had sought to influence the probes, US Attorney General William Barr said in a summary released on Sunday that the special counsel had not found enough proof to warrant bringing obstruction charges against Trump. Mr Barr concluded: “The special counsel did not find that any US person or Trump campaign official conspired or knowingly co-ordinated with Russia.” “The Special Counsel therefore did not draw a conclusion – one way or the other – as to whether the examined conduct constituted obstruction,” the letter read.
It marked a political victory for Trump and he claimed “complete and total exoneration,” although his Democratic opponents quickly expressed dissatisfaction with the outcome and vowed to keep up their political assault against him.
