'Robert Mueller has not established that collusion or conspiracy took place between the Trump campaign and Russia’s government, but the special counsel stopped short of deciding whether Donald Trump obstructed justice.
Attorney general William Barr said in a letter to Congress that Mr Mueller and his team did not find that there was a direct link between Mr Trump’s campaign and the multiple strategies the Kremlin employed to influence the 2016 presidential election. “[T]he investigation did not establish that members of the Trump campaign conspired or co-ordinated with the Russian government in its election interference activities,” he quoted the report as saying.
Meanwhile, the special counsel’s investigation provided “facts” surrounding potential obstruction of justice undertaken by Mr Trump, but Mr Barr and his deputy Rod Rosenstein, determined that evidence was not sufficient to charge the president with a crime.
The letter from Mr Barr was made public just days after Mr Mueller’s team finalised its report detailing its findings from nearly two years’ worth of investigation that enraptured the nation with a slow drip of details that at times appeared poised to implicate the highest levels of US government in potentially criminal activity. It also resulted in the filing of indictments against several individuals close to the president on financial crimes, perjury, and for felony campaign finance violations.
Mr Trump, during a visit to his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida, declared victory after the contents of the report were disclosed.'
