Special counsel Robert Mueller found "substantial evidence" that President Donald Trump's firing of James Comey was due to the FBI director's "unwillingness to publicly state that the president was not personally under investigation" — but Mueller's team concluded that Congress can make a determination on whether Trump obstructed justice.
Those were among the findings of Mueller's 22-month investigation of Russia's interference in the 2016 election. The Justice Department released the 448-page report Thursday in redacted form.
Mueller said his investigation did not establish that members of the Trump campaign conspired or coordinated with the Russian government in its election interference campaign. The team defined coordination as "an agreement — tacit or express — between the Trump Campaign" and the Kremlin.
Some of Mueller's key findings on the Russian influence campaign include:
The redacted version of the report comes less than a month after Barr released a four-page letter summarizing what he called the "principal conclusions" in Mueller's report, including that the investigation did not find any conspiracy or coordination between the Trump campaign and Russia.
Barr also said that Mueller's report "did not exonerate" the president regarding obstruction of justice, but he and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein concluded there wasn't sufficient evidence to charge Trump.
The attorney general's summary was made public March 24, two days after Mueller delivered the report to the Justice Department. Democrats, particularly majority lawmakers and committee chairs in the House, have been pressuring Barr to release the full report, without redactions.
