BREAKING: DOJ Issues Summary On Mueller Report, “Does Not Exonerate President Trump Of Obstruction”

The Washington Post reports:

The highly anticipated summary of special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s investigation was sent to Congress on Sunday, a Justice Department official said.

Attorney General William P. Barr gave senior lawmakers the “principal conclusions” of Mueller’s probe into whether any of President Trump’s associates conspired with Russia to interfere with the 2016 election, and whether the president attempted to obstruct justice during the course of that investigation.

Mueller’s central mission has been to determine if Russian efforts to interfere in the 2016 election were aided or assisted in any way by Americans, including people close to Trump. In all, Russian citizens interacted with at least 14 Trump associates during the campaign and presidential transition, according to public records and interviews.

The New York Times reports:

The investigation led by Robert S. Mueller III found that neither President Trump nor any of his aides conspired or coordinated with the Russian government’s 2016 election interference, according to a summary of the special counsel’s findings made public on Sunday by Attorney General William P. Barr.

The summary also said that the special counsel’s team lacked sufficient evidence to establish that President Trump illegally obstructed justice, but added that Mr. Mueller’s team stopped short of exonerating Mr. Trump.
