Putin Praises Mueller Report As “Very Objective”

The Hill reports:

Russian President Vladimir Putin on Tuesday praised special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. elections as “objective.”

“On the whole he had a very objective investigation and he confirmed that there are no traces whatsoever of collusion between Russia and the incumbent administration, which we said was absolutely fake,” Putin said during a meeting with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo in Sochi, Russia, according to media translations.

Trump and Putin spoke earlier this month and agreed that the investigation is “over and there was no collusion,” according to White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.
