Robert Mueller submits Russian Federation report

Robert Mueller submits Russian Federation report

Special counsel Robert Mueller has released his long-awaited final report on the Russian Federation investigation to Attorney General William Barr.

Trump said on Wednesday he does not mind if the public is allowed to see the report. White House lawyers, meanwhile, expect to have an opportunity to review whatever Barr intends to submit to Congress and the public. Is it because Mueller has concluded that Trump did not do anything wrong, either by way of "colluding" with Russian Federation or interfering with the administration of justice?

Special counsel Robert Mueller departs after a meeting on Capitol Hill in Washington, June 21, 2017.

Will the report be made public?

In addition, Rosenstein didn't appoint Mueller to write a report - that's simply the ordinary course of action laid out in the special counsel regulations. Such a move by Democrats would likely be vigorously contested by the Trump administration.

Mr Nadler, a New York Democrat, acknowledged the investigation had concluded on Twitter, saying: "We look forward to getting the full Mueller report and related materials".

"You put the wrong people in a couple of positions, and they leave people for a long time that shouldn't be there, and all of a sudden, they're trying to take you out with bullshit, OK", Trump said.

The investigation has continued for almost two years.

UPDATE, 5:11 p.m. CDT: Mueller is not recommending any further indictments in connection with the now-completed Russian Federation investigation.

Equally central to Mueller's work is his inquiry into whether the president tried to obstruct the investigation.

Mr Comey, who was sacked by Mr Trump in May 2017, states he is "morally unfit to be president of the United States" in a scathing assessment of his term in office. "I also don't care".

Mueller began his investigation in May, 2017, after he was appointed special counsel after Trump fired the FBI director, James Comey.

In deciding what to release, Barr may have to confront thorny legal issues involving secrecy of grand jury testimony, protecting classified information, communications with the White House possibly subject to the principle of executive privilege shielding certain information from disclosure, and safeguarding confidential reasons for why some individuals were not charged.
