The Department of Justice has sent a letter to Congress summarizing special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into the Trump campaign’s possible collusion with Russia.
The letter is four pages long, but here are the main pull quotes about Russia and obstruction of justice.
“The Special Counsel states that ‘while this report does not conclude that the President committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him.’”

There was no finding that anyone in the Trump campaign conspired with Russia about the 2016 election.
“The Special Counsel’s investigation did not find that the Trump campaign or anyone associated with it conspired or coordinated with Russia in its efforts to influence the 2016 US presidential election.”
