Special Counsel Robert Mueller has now concluded his probe into Russian Collusion in the 2016 US Presidential election. He is not recommending any further indictments.
US Attorney General William Barr has stated that “the Special Counsel’s principal conclusions [could be released] as soon as this weekend.”
Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee-Sanders responded on Twitter moments ago, confirming that the White House has not yet been briefed on the report:
President Trump’s two top lawyers, Jay Sekulow and Rudy Giuliani, released a joint statement that reads in part: “We’re pleased that the Office of Special Counsel has delivered its report to the Attorney General pursuant to the regulations … Attorney General Barr will determine the appropriate next steps.”
Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senator Chuck Schumer reacted in a joint statement, echoing the voices of other prominent Democrats: “It is imperative for Mr. Barr to make the full report public.”
Glenn Greenwald of The Intercept summarized the events of today thusly: “The Mueller investigation is complete and this is a simple fact that will never go away: not one single American was charged, indicted or convicted for conspiring with Russia to influence the 2016 election – not even a low-level volunteer. The number is zero.”
This is a breaking story and will be updated.
