Lifting a major pall over President Donald Trump, Attorney General William Barr reported to Congress yesterday that special counsel Robert Mueller found no evidence that Trump or his campaign conspired with Russia to secure his 2016 election. Barr, who can decide what to release from Mueller’s report, also wrote that it “did not draw a conclusion — one way or the other” about whether there was any obstruction of justice.
Now what? Investigations in Congress and New York’s southern district are still ongoing — though as OZY reports, some believe Democrats would be wise to avoid re-litigating the special counsel’s probe.
