Mulling Over The Mueller Report
Attorney General William Barr has released a letter summarizing the Mueller report.
Key findings from the Mueller report, per Barr:
• No evidence that the Trump campaign conspired with Russia to influence the 2016 election.
• No recommendation of further indictments.
• Mueller “does not conclude” Trump committed a crime, but “does not exonerate him.” pic.twitter.com/m3xdkwrFMq

Barr and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein spent the weekend reviewing the principal findings of the document, and released this letter on Sunday afternoon.
The president responded to the report via Twitter.
No Collusion, No Obstruction, Complete and Total EXONERATION. KEEP AMERICA GREAT!

We bring you the latest on the report, plus reaction from across the political spectrum.
