Mueller report finds no Trump-Russia collusion, offers no conclusion on obstruction of justice Updated: 2019-04-19 09:16:33 KST

The redacted version of special counsel Robert Mueller's nearly 400-page long report into allegations over collusion with Russia in the lead up to the U.S. 2016 presidential election, concludes that it "did not establish that members of the Trump campaign conspired or coordinated with the Russian government in the election interference activities."
Mueller learned Trump had repeatedly asked his people to find Hillary Clinton's deleted emails but Trump's campaign did not get in contact with Russian hackers nor obtained the deleted Clinton emails.
And just like the summary of the report given by the Attorney General William Barr, Mueller offered no definitive conclusion on whether President Trump obstructed justice during the course of his investigation.
The report includes 11 possible instances of obstruction of justice investigated and the members of Congress found that Mueller concluded "Congress may apply the obstruction laws to the President's corruption exercise of powers of office".
The House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler accused Barr of protecting President Trump and of ignoring key findings, saying that Mueller's report outlines "disturbing evidence that Trump engaged in obstruction of justice and other misconducts."

"Finally, it is clear the special counsel's office conducted an incredibly thorough investigation in order to preserve the evidence for future investigators. The special counsel made clear that he did not exonerate the president and the responsibility now falls to Congress to hold the president accountable for his actions."

Democratic presidential candidates are calling on Mueller to testify before Congress and are demanding that the full unredacted report be released to the public.
