A summary from Attorney General William Barr said that Mueller's report cleared Trump and his campaign on collusion with Russian Federation, but left the question of obstruction of justice open-ended. No redaction process will blot out Mueller's findings. Only a four-page summary from Trump's attorney general has surfaced, despite the House voting 420-0 to release Mueller's full report. "To be honest, it's a shame your President had to go through since before I was even elected", he said.
Barr, nominated to his job by Trump last fall, said their decision was based on the evidence uncovered by Mueller and not based on whether a sitting president can be indicted.
US media reports, citing Justice Department sources, have said that no further indictments are expected to come directly from the Mueller probe.
Here are some key takeaways from Mueller's findings.
Several current and former Trump officials from his campaign and administration retained personal lawyers to help them respond to questions throughout the probe.
OH politicians had drastically different takes on the four page summary of Robert Mueller's examination of Russian interference in the 2018 presidential election and how President Donald Trump's campaign handled the matter. The legislative victory would give the Republicans their first major accomplishiment since President Donald Trump was inaugurated in January.
"What they're basically saying is that they're going to impeach the president for being Donald Trump", he told CNN.
Now, that cloud has largely been lifted.

Muslims account for just over 1% of New Zealand's 4.8-million population, a 2013 census showed, most of whom were born overseas.
That signals there might be no more criminal charges against Trump associates on the issue of whether the Trump campaign conspired with Russian Federation to help the real estate magnate beat Democrat Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential race.
"No Collusion, No Obstruction, Complete and Total EXONERATION".
Barr's summary, they pointed out, also quoted a line from the Mueller report that said it "does not exonerate" the president on the issue of obstruction of justice. Barr also explained that Mueller "did not draw a conclusion" on whether Trump obstructed justice, leaving the determination to Barr himself. To some it may seem that Mueller kicked the can down the road.
Mr Trump has repeatedly slammed the Mr Mueller investigation as a "witch hunt" and insisted there was "NO COLLUSION" with Russian Federation.
Barr did not waste time announcing his own view.
Critics have charged that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who signed off on the FISA application renewals, should not have approved them without more reliable intelligence.
One imagines he wrote the report in such a way (appendices, perhaps?) that allows a public release of the core document and the shielding of sensitive information about lower-level officials or private citizens found not indictable.
Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., former Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., and his acting chief of staff, Mick Mulvaney, also a former SC congressman, according to a White House official, as aides sought to keep the president busy during the tumultuous weekend.
Senator Elizabeth Warren said she would not be satisfied by the synopsis from Trump's "handpicked" attorney general. Many Republicans also want the report released and say it will vindicate Trump. That material typically remains sealed unless a judge orders it to be made public.
