After 500 search warrants, 2,800 subpoenas, and 500 witness interviews, special counsel Robert Mueller determines there was no Russian collusion.
According to Mueller’s findings, there is no evidence the Trump campaign colluded with the Russians during the 2016 election.
Attorney General William Barr and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein concluded there was also no sufficient evidence to suggest President Trump obstructed justice.
According to Barr, there was evidence to support “both sides of the equation,” but not enough to prove it “beyond a reasonable doubt.”
President Trump and Vice President Pence have praised the findings, which the president called a “total exoneration.”
No Collusion, No Obstruction, Complete and Total EXONERATION. KEEP AMERICA GREAT!

After 675 days of what President Trump calls the “witch hunt,” Mueller submitted his report and findings to Barr.
Just a couple days later, Barr released the report’s key findings in a summary format and sent it to Congress on Sunday.
Regarding the question of obstruction of justice, Mueller and his team were most notably investigating whether the firing of former FBI Director James Comey fit the mold.
