President Trump's campaign "did not conspire" with Russian Federation during the 2016 election campaign, Special Counsel Robert Mueller's report says.
Still, Attorney General William Barr's summary of Mueller's final report appeared to significantly reduce the risk of impeachment that had hovered over Trump nearly since he took office on January 20, 2017. There was no obstruction.
"It was a complete and total exoneration", he said, adding that it was an "illegal takedown that failed and hopefully somebody is going to be looking at their other side".
"It's a shame that our country had to go through this". "It was just announced that there was no collusion with Russian Federation - the most ridiculous thing I have ever heard, that there was no obstruction and none whatsoever". There is already a crowded field of Democratic presidential candidates hoping to deny Trump re-election next year.
The president watched television, talked to staff and made calls during his flight home from Florida.
"The investigation did not establish that members of the Trump Campaign conspired or coordinated with the Russian government in its election interference activities".
US media reports, citing Justice Department sources, have said that no further indictments are expected to come directly from the Mueller probe.
On questions about the potential obstruction of justice by the president, the report "does not conclude that Trump committed a crime".
Mueller, a former director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, has won wide acclaim in Washington for his impartiality, but his report is landing at a time of widespread political division in the United States, with polls showing a sharp split among Americans about Trump's performance in office and whether he should be re-elected. It was a moment of triumph for Trump, who has always been targeted over the matter.
