Mueller finds Trump campaign officials did not knowingly conspire with Russian Federation

Mueller finds Trump campaign officials did not knowingly conspire with Russian Federation

A leading Senate Republican said on Monday he would ask Attorney General William Barr to appoint a special counsel to probe whether USA law enforcement officials made missteps in their investigation into possible collusion between President Donald Trump's campaign and Russian Federation.

Special counsel Robert Mueller III did not find that Donald Trump's campaign or any of his associates conspired with Russian Federation in its efforts to interfere in the 2016 election, according to a summary of Mueller's findings sent to lawmakers Sunday.

"The Special Counsel therefore did not draw a conclusion-one way or the other-as to whether the examined conduct constituted obstruction ... the Special Counsel's report states that 'while this report does not conclude that the President committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him, '" Barr's letter said. "KEEP AMERICA GREAT!" Trump tweeted on Sunday afternoon.

Federal rules say special counsel reports are confidential, Barr wrote, though he as Attorney General can weigh public interest to decide what to release.

On questions about the potential obstruction of justice by the president, the report "does not conclude that Trump committed a crime". And investigations into Trump's presidency and business affairs will go and on over the coming year.

The full extent of Mueller's findings, including evidence concerning obstruction of justice, will remain unknowable until a more complete version of the report is released.

The attorney general also revealed in his letter a massive effort by Mueller through the nation's court system and in interviewing witnesses to reach his findings.

Trump supporter Richard C. Osburn, 52, a nurse from South Charleston, West Virginia, said Mueller's findings were proof the president was "drug through the mud". "To be honest, it's a shame that your president has had to go through this", he said.

"2 yrs of false accusations I'm glad that Mueller's work is done I appreciate his good work & the recommendations", he wrote. Trump's son Donald Trump Jr. and Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner met with a Russian lawyer after being told she had incriminating information on Clinton that was being offered as part of the Russian government's support for the GOP candidate, according to emails exchanged in advance of the meeting. Instead, his decision has kicked up even more dust and aroused suspicions from Democrats about precisely what Mueller found to possibly suggest Trump obstructed justice.

Attorney General William Barr, as of Monday morning, March 25, has yet to make Mueller's report public, but he has written a letter summarizing its key points.

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler, who would lead any impeachment effort, said he would call Barr to testify soon "in light of the very concerning discrepancies and final decision making at the Justice Department". "And the other side that's not happy wants to do some more investigation or do something else", said Stephen Turner, an electrical engineer from Belmont, North Carolina, who is Republican and voted for Trump. And she has called for a "full examination" of a New York Times report accusing Trump's family of benefiting from "dubious tax schemes" in the 1990s.

U.S. Rep. Jared Golden, D-2nd District, said Sunday evening that Barr should make the special counsel's report available to the public.

In the months ahead there's little doubt "no collusion, no obstruction" will be a central part of Trump's messaging, especially given that a multitude of probes into his political and personal affairs - unconnected to the Russian Federation investigation - will continue.

Trump's backers have argued, for instance, that the president has the executive authority to fire anyone, including his former FBI director James Comey, who was leading the original investigation into whether Trump campaign members colluded with Russians to influence the 2016 election. "Well, if there was nothing in the report why won't they just release it?" That detail suggests the president's legal troubles may be far from over, although his numerous denunciations of collusion with Russian Federation now appear to be supported by the results of Mueller's two-year investigation.

"For me or anyone to have an informed opinion on the substance of whether that opinion by Barr.is right, you need to know more about the evidence", Sandick said.
