President Trump's campaign "did not conspire" with Russia during the 2016 election campaign, Special Counsel Robert Mueller's report says.

The summary of the special counsel's report released on Sunday "did not draw a conclusion" as to whether there was any obstruction of justice, either.

It states: "While this report does not conclude that the president committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him".

However, the attorney general says this does not amount to an offence.

The report is the culmination of two years of investigation by Mr Mueller.

"The report outlines the Russian effort to influence the election and documents crimes committed," the letter by Attorney General William Barr to Congress says.

"The special counsel did not find that any US person or Trump campaign official conspired or knowingly co-ordinated with Russia."

The report was submitted on Friday to Mr Barr, who has been poring over the document.

Congressman Jerry Nadler, the Democratic Chair of the House of Representatives Judiciary Committee, emphasised that the attorney general did not rule out that Mr Trump may have obstructed justice.

"Barr says that the president may have acted to obstruct justice, but that for an obstruction conviction, 'the government would need to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that a person, acting with corrupt intent, engaged in obstructive conduct'."

But dr3n, nothing changes if you have the report. Same for everyone here. The govt agencies will always have classified info. We are not in a position to to see such info and have to take the word of those involved. If that word cannot be trusted then there is really only 1 option...

It's seems the world has boiled down to the fact that no one and nothing can be trusted. If that is the case, what is the point of any govt agency existing?

but it does for me.. if the report is released and we can all read it.. and it says that he/no one else did anything wrong then i have to accept it dont i?

but what i dont have to accept is somebody telling me (who was hired specifically for that role by the person being accused of doing wrong) that "this" is what the report says.. but also.. you cant see it..

which is where we currently are..

i mean call me skeptical in this instance.. but i naturally cant think anything other than they are billy bullshitting me.. why would they hide the proof that potentially vindicates their claims?

Its a bit like Boeing being able to do their own investigations and certifications in regards to air disasters... Look how well that one turned out for everyone.. Or the police investigating themselves for crimes they themselves potentially committed.. how many times has that scenario gone tits up all over the world? this isn't any different..

Rod Rosenstein.

So are you saying that RR was hired by Trump to keep Trump out of trouble and that he too is Putin’s and Trump’s puppet?

No, the electorate cant see it yet. Neither can those retards in Congress, for that matter.

Meh. The evidence convinces me...

I would like to see the full report, but in the meantime:



What evidence do you have? Why, if you have access to this evidence, didn't you give it to Muller? I certainly hope you'll bring this evidence to Congress because you're the only one so far with evidence...

or are you talking out of your ass trying to cling to the slimmest chance someone you dislike just has to be guilty of something... anything to justify your attacks on him for the last three years?

You may want to consider that the Starr report did uncover wrongdoing, both directly and indirectly involved with the main focus of the investigation... and look where that went, a second term and a first lady running for office.

And yes I want the report released even though most people won't read it, the Right will highight all the non-evidence while to you and the left every redacted portion (no matter the security concerns) will be proof of surpressed evidence and every world citizen not interviewed could have been the one with the evidence they needed to prove Trump is a Russian puppet.
