Barr: Mueller Found That Russians Attacked Election But No Americans Knowingly Colluded

In a press conference, Attorney General William Barr said that Special Counsel Robert Mueller found that Russian intelligence officers were involved in attempts to undermine the 2016 election, but that no Americans were knowingly involved. Barr also said that there was not enough evidence to charge President Trump with obstruction of justice.

As Barr prepared to release the Mueller report, he said that redactions in the report were related to ongoing investigations and protected sources. He said that the special counsel had agreed to the redactions and that no redactions were made based on executive privilege.

The attorney general said that the report did not conclude that President Trump committed a crime but also does not exonerate him. He said that Mueller relied on the White House Office of Legal Counsel opinion that a sitting president cannot be indicted in his conclusion that there was no obstruction of justice. Barr also said that the president was “frustrated and angered” by the Russia investigation.

Barr left open the possibility that Robert Mueller might testify before Congress, saying that he had “no objection” to testimony by Mueller.

The redacted version of the Mueller report will be made public today. Further details will be provided after Resurgent has had an opportunity to review the report.
