S. Mueller III, who currently serves as a special counsel, issued a report to Attorney General William P. Barr after his long investigation in the 2016 Elections case that began in May 2017 on the link of Russian influence in the results.
These results were not expected so soon since it was believed that they would not arrive until a few months later. The main conclusions of this report were reported to the leaders of the Congress by Attorney Barr, the fact is that not enough evidence was found to judge that President Trump obstructed justice or that he or his team allowed Russian influence in the elections.
During the investigation, Mr. Mueller attempted to speak with POTUS, however, on the recommendation of his attorneys, Mr. Trump will only respond to written questions, as they are concerned that oral responses may bring political repercussions, including impeachment or legal problems after his exit from the White House. It was even speculated that the actions of the president’s lawyers could have the intention of applying executive privileges that could keep part of the investigation secret.
The results of this report are somewhat ambiguous since Mr. Barr quotes the special counsel Mueller as stating, “while this report does not conclude that the President committed to crime, it also does not exonerate him.”. Having an inconclusive result for lack of evidence: “I have concluded that the evidence developed during the Special Counsel’s investigation is not sufficient to establish that the President committed an obstruction-of-justice offense.”
Representatives of the Democratic Party, insist that Mueller’s report must be public in its entirety, however, Mr. Barr has declared that it will be decided which parts of the report will be made public after discussing it between Mr. Mueller and Rod J. Rosenstein, the deputy attorney general who has observed the investigation.
Although no one has been found guilty of conspiring with the Russians to rig the elections, there are cases of trials for lying to federal authorities about the 2016 Elections case. Among them are Mr. Manafort; Michael T. Flynn, the president’s first national security adviser; and Michael D. Cohen, Mr. Trump’s former lawyer, and longtime fixer.
Barr again quotes Mueller as writing: “The investigation did not establish that members of the Trump Campaign conspired or coordinated with the Russian government in its election interference activities.” As well as no evidence was found of any link between the Russian cyber attacks of 2016 and the Trump team. Likewise, President Trump has declared that the report must be public, since tens of millions of people are waiting for their results, and to know what the report contains.
