The President's son, Donald Jr., set up a meeting with purported Kremlin intermediaries at Trump Tower in June, 2016, in hopes of receiving compromising information on Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.
The Democratic leader of the U.S. Senate, Chuck Schumer, and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi say the conclusions drawn by U.S. Attorney General William Barr about special counsel Robert Mueller's report undercut the findings of the report itself.
"It is good news that there was insufficient evidence to charge the President of the United States with having conspired with a foreign adversary or with having obstructed justice".
Special counsel Robert Mueller's redacted report on the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election is photographed on Thursday.
"I'm committed to ensuring the greatest degree possible of transparency concerning the special counsel's investigation consistent with the law", Barr said Thursday, adding that the report contains only "limited redactions", none of which were the result of executive privilege.
"ANY competent public corruption prosecutor would bring obstruction charges against Trump/and win", Holder said in a Friday tweet.
Mueller, in his report, does not find that the president or his campaign coordinated with Russian Federation.
"In late July 2016, soon after WikiLeaks' first release of stolen documents, a foreign government contacted the Federal Bureau of Investigation about a May 2016 encounter with Trump Campaign foreign policy advisor George Papadopoulos", Mueller wrote in the report.
But he was in a more defensive mood Friday, as he prepared for a long Easter weekend at his Florida golf resort, insisting that he had done nothing wrong.

Mueller goes on to describe interactions between Trump campaign officials and associates starting in 2015 and continuing until after the election, providing detail on a number of interactions that had always been the subject of speculation.
Democrats meanwhile have demanded action against Barr, arguing that Mueller's report undercut some of the attorney general's key claims about the obstruction issue and the White House's cooperation with the investigation.
Eric Swalwell, a California congressman, called for Barr's resignation while several others berated him.
"I am open to working with the department to reach a reasonable accommodation for access to these materials, however I can not accept any proposal which leaves most of Congress in the dark, as they grapple with their duties of legislation, oversight and constitutional accountability, "Nadler said in a statement. Most importantly, the vote was not affected", Trump wrote on his official Twitter account".
When he learned Mr. Mueller had been appointed to investigate Russian election interference, Mr. Trump exploded. Mr Trump has once again rubbished the Mueller inquiry.
The attacks were a dramatic departure from the upbeat public face the White House had put on it just 24 hours earlier, when Trump celebrated the report's findings as full exoneration and his counsellor Kellyanne Conway called it "the best day" for Trump's team since his election. "I'm fucked, '" the report said. Mr. McGahn refused and prepared to quit instead: He packed up his office, wrote a resignation letter and told then-White House chief of staff Reince Priebus that Mr. Trump had asked him to "do insane shit".
For one, he does not believe it is a good idea for him to indict a sitting president - or even openly conclude that one had committed a crime - because this would impede a president's ability to run the government.
"At the same time, if we had confidence after a thorough investigation of the facts that the president clearly did not commit obstruction of justice, we would so state".
"This is the worst thing that ever happened to me".
