The Full Mueller Report Was Just Released. Read It Here

1263

The much anticipated final report from special counsel Robert Mueller, who was appointed in 2017 to investigate whether Donald Trump treasonously colluded with Russia to steal the 2016 election from Hillary Clinton, was finally released on Thursday morning. You can download Volume I and Volume II of Mueller’s report here and here, respectively.

At a Thursday press conference ahead of the full Mueller report’s release, Barr said that Mueller’s investigation and report “did not establish that members of the Trump campaign conspired or coordinated with the Russian government in its election interference activities.”

“The Special Counsel found no collusion by any Americans” in the efforts of Russians to interfere in the 2016 election or hack the e-mail accounts of top Hillary Clinton aides or the Democratic National Committee, he added.

“[T]here was no evidence of Trump campaign ‘collusion’ with the Russian government’s hacking,” Barr said.

The attorney general also said Mueller’s investigation failed to establish that Trump obstructed justice.

“After carefully reviewing the facts and legal theories outlined in the report, and in consultation with the Office of Legal Counsel and other Department lawyers, the Deputy Attorney General and I concluded that the evidence developed by the Special Counsel is not sufficient to establish that the President committed an obstruction-of-justice offense,” Barr said.

“[T]he White House fully cooperated with the Special Counsel’s investigation, providing unfettered access to campaign and White House documents, directing senior aides to testify freely, and asserting no privilege claims,” he said. “And at the same time, the President took no act that in fact deprived the Special Counsel of the documents and witnesses necessary to complete his investigation.”

The release of Mueller’s report brings to a close a sprawling, multi-year and multi-million dollar investigation that in the end concluded the president did not illegally conspire with Russia or act as a secret agent of Vladimir Putin during the 2016 campaign. The release of the report followed years of frenzied speculation and conspiracy theory-mongering about Trump’s alleged Kremlin connections.

Much of the hysteria was fueled by a so-called dossier from retired foreign spy Christopher Steele, who was jointly funded by the Democratic National Committee and the Hillary Clinton campaign. The salacious and unverified allegations in Steele’s collection of dossiers against Trump were then used as a primary basis by the Obama administration to spy on Trump campaign affiliate Carter Page. Despite the fact that the dossier was used in 2016 to justify spying on private American citizens, none of its major allegations have been verified, while many of its central claims have been thoroughly debunked.

Barr testified before the Senate last week that he planned to investigate whether the 2016 spying operation against Trump and his presidential campaign was proper and lawful. He also said an ongoing investigation of the matter by the Department of Justice’s inspector general would likely be concluded in May or June of this year.

“I believe that the publicly released report will allow every American to understand the results of the Special Counsel’s investigation,” Barr concluded at his press conference on the full Mueller report.

  1. It is not the full report, but does indite Barr and exposes Trump as an obstructionist and that several in his campaign DID conspire with Russian officials. Mueller was handcuffed by his remit to pass the russian end for political reasons, but allows Congress to go after him for obstruction which has been proven by Trump’s interviews and tweets for every day these almost 2 1/2 yrs. The report is damning for trump- look for him to call it a fake investigation because the crud will never admit wrongdoing- however, most americans believe Mueller over the consumate liar trump

    • One thing is certain. People like you will continue to refuse facts , and keep talking about conjecture and myths. Try being objective about all that you hear .

    • If there was anything that mueller could have charged president trump with he would have. That is how true Americans know that this was a witch hunt. Wake up people dems can’t govern if they could they would be working to make America great again but they have not done one thing for we the people sense they took the house. Be smart and vote republican in 2020

    • crazy interpretation lady you just ignored all the facts and made up your very own conclusion and stated that as fact. You do not mention at all that Muller is a Dem and only anti Trumpers working for him. His hands where not tied and he could have gone anywhere he wanted if it was provable. You also like every other anti Trumper completely ignore that Hilary the Dems and FBI paid for the false dossier that was written while concluding with Russians if any one was responsible for trying to turn the elections with the help of Russia it was the Dems and hey there is ample and damming proof of their collusion open your eyes and look at the whole picture. This should not be about getting at Trump but about getting at the truth

  2. dream on sara palmer, all evidence shows that the LIEberals were the true “collusionist” and that they were the ones that used lies to spy on a private citizen. You LIEberals will never be happy because you didn’t get your way, 5 more years, it must really suck to be you

  3. It would be nice if the entire democrat spy team were brought up on charges before the next election. I think the entire past administration should be behind bars. It seems the swamp is comprised of well over half of Washington. Some how we need to get back to the rule of law and our Constitution.
