Robert Mueller Clears President Trump, No Evidence The President Colluded With Russia
Attorney General William Barr on Sunday delivered his summary of the special counsel Robert Mueller’s report on the FBI’s Russia investigation.
According to Barr’s summary, Mueller “determined not to make a traditional prosecutorial judgement” with respect to whether Trump obstructed justice.
But Barr and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein concluded that Trump did not commit an obstruction-of-justice crime.
Mueller also found that neither Trump, nor anyone on his campaign, “conspired or coordinated with Russia” during the election.
President Trump who adamantly decried the Mueller probe as a “witch hunt,” also tweeted: “No Collusion, No Obstruction, Complete and Total EXONERATION. KEEP AMERICA GREAT!”
No Collusion, No Obstruction, Complete and Total EXONERATION. KEEP AMERICA GREAT!

“It was just announced there was no collusion with Russia, the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever heard,” President Trump told reporters in Florida before boarding Air Force One. “This was an illegal takedown that failed and, hopefully, somebody’s going to be looking at the other side.”
