  • President Donald Trump signaled he was relieved following the release of a Justice Department letter concluding that the special counsel Robert Mueller did not find a coordinated effort between Russia and the Trump campaign during the 2016 US Presidential election.
  • “There was no obstruction, and none whatsoever,” Trump said to reporters in Palm Beach, Florida. “And it was a complete and total exoneration. It’s a shame that our country had to go through this. To be honest, it’s a shame that your president has had to go through this before I even got elected.”
  • But Mueller’s investigation did not yield a conclusive finding on whether Trump obstructed justice, and therefore could not determine whether Trump had committed an offense.
  • “The Special Counsel states that ‘while this report does not conclude that the President committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him,'” Barr wrote.
