The Justice Department's summary of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's report says Mueller did not find evidence that the Trump campaign or those associated with it "conspired or coordinated" with Russia. Attorney General William Barr released his summary of Mueller's report to Congress today. In the summary, Barr says that "while this report does not conclude that the President committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him." Mueller's report of alleged Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election was submitted on Friday.
In an excerpt from the letter, Barr wrote:
"the Special Counsel found that Russian government actors successfully hacked into computers and obtained emails from persons affiliated with the Clinton campaign and Democratic Party organizations, and publicly disseminated those materials through various intermediaries, including WikiLeaks. Based on these activities, the Special Counsel brought criminal charges against a number of Russian military officers for conspiring to hack into computers in the United States for purposes of influencing the election. But as noted above, the Special Counsel did not find that the Trump campaign, or anyone associated with it, conspired or coordinated with the Russian government in these efforts, despite multiple offers from Russian-affiliated individuals to assist the Trump campaign."
A short time after the letter was released, President Trump tweeted, "No Collusion, No Obstruction, Complete and Total EXONERATION. KEEP AMERICA GREAT!"
