Mueller Report Details Trump’s Efforts to End Probe
In his highly anticipated report, special counsel Robert Mueller revealed that although there was “insufficient evidence” to establish that President Donald Trump colluded with Russia, Trump sought to derail the investigation for months. His attempts were unsuccessful, investigators wrote, mostly because his aides “declined to carry out orders or accede to his requests.” Mueller chose not to prosecute Trump for obstruction of justice but pointedly did not exonerate him.
What happens next? It’s up to Congress to decide how — or whether — to pursue Mueller’s findings, while Trump 2020 campaign manager Brad Parscale pledged that “justice will be served.”
