Mueller Probe Doesn't Exonerate Trump, Release Report "Urgently": Nancy Pelosi

Mueller offers no answer on whether Trump obstructed justice

President Trump's campaign "did not conspire" with Russian Federation during the 2016 election campaign, Special Counsel Robert Mueller's report says.

On the other hand, according to Barr's letter, Mueller clearly had some evidence to support an obstruction case, but was uncertain whether it was enough to support criminal charges.

They also said Attorney General Bill Barr, nominated just months ago by Trump, is "not a neutral observer" in the process and that his summary of the report, delivered to Congress earlier, is not an objective determination about Mueller's findings. The special counsel ultimately declined to "make a traditional prosecutorial judgment" as to whether the president committed obstruction of justice, leaving the decision to Barr.

Trump, in Florida, celebrated that the report showed "there was no collusion".

The letter was hailed as a vindicating triumph by both Mr. Trump and his Republican allies in Congress. "To be honest, it's a shame that your president had to go through this".

"It's a shame that the country had to go through this", he added.

"This was an illegal takedown that failed", he continued.

Mueller also investigated whether Trump obstructed justice but did not come to a definitive answer.

Democrats demanded to receive Mueller's entire report and his underlying evidence to further their own multiple investigations into the president.

China, US to hold new rounds of trade talks
Trump has on many occasions said the trade imbalance between the us and China is a sign that America is being "ripped off". If you're going to sell them to the Americans, make them here", the President argued. "We're straightening it out".

The Democratic heads of six House committees wrote a joint letter to Barr Friday, saying, "If the Special Counsel has reason to believe that the president has engaged in criminal or other serious misconduct, then the Justice Department has an obligation not to hide such information".

The report is the culmination of two years of investigation by Mr Mueller.

But the broader fight is not over.

That signals there might be no more criminal charges against Trump associates on the issue of whether the Trump campaign conspired with Russian Federation to help ensure the Republican businessman's surprise election win against Democrat Hillary Clinton. "It was a complete and total exoneration", Trump said of Mueller's conclusions.

Nadler, however, said the president was misrepresenting the findings of the summary authored by Barr, who the New York Democrat accused of making "questionable legal judgments".

The unending probe saw Trump frequently angrily attacking Mueller - one of the most respected members of Washington's judicial and prosecutorial elite - and at times appeared to throw his policy momentum off course. The probe illuminated Russia's assault on the American political system, painted the Trump campaign as eager to exploit the release of hacked Democratic emails to hurt Democrat Hillary Clinton and exposed lies by Trump aides aimed at covering up their Russia-related contacts.

Democrat Jerry Nadler, chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, announced that he would be calling Barr to testify in the near future.

Mueller was appointed special counsel of investigation into alleged Russian interference into the 2016 election.
