DW News: Mueller report released: A first look and Trump’s reaction

20/04/2019

The long-awaited, much-anticipated, heavily redacted Mueller report has been published. People are now poring over the 400-page document, which examines alleged Russian interference in the 2016 US election, and the conduct of President Trump and his campaign team. One key question is whether the president undertook illegal action to thwart the investigation itself. The report says investigators were “unable” to clear the president of obstruction of justice, and that there is evidence that he sought to seize control of the enquiry. But the report also says there was NOT sufficient evidence of illegal collusion between the Trump team and Russian officials. The president’s legal team claims Mueller’s findings amount to a, “total victory” for the president.
