5 Things to Know About Barr's Summary of the Mueller Probe

The American public has yet to see even a full sentence from the Mueller report. But one of the few things that we do know is that it explicitly “does not exonerate” the president of at least one crime.

Special Counsel Robert Mueller finished his two-year investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election, the Trump campaign, and whether Trump committed obstruction of justice in trying to shut down that investigation. He delivered a confidential report of his findings to Attorney General Willian Barr, and since then, he’s already been photographed more times out and about in D.C. than he has in the entire past two years.

But the end of his investigation is just the beginning and Barr’s four-page summary Congress did not include a single full sentence from the Mueller report. This means that all we’ve gotten so far is Batt’s take on the investigation — and he’s publicly stated that he thought the Mueller investigation was “fatally misconceived.”

However, his summary did say Russia interfered in the election though Mueller “did not establish a conspiracy.” It also stated, “While this report does not conclude that President committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him.”

There are also over a dozen open investigation into Trump, his family, and his business in other jurisdictions.
