Trump campaign did not coordinate with Russia in 2016: Justice Department

The Justice Department said Sunday that special counsel Robert Mueller s investigation did not find evidence that President Donald Trump s campaign conspired or coordinated with Russia to influence the 2016 presidential election. Mueller also investigated whether Trump obstructed justice but did not come to a definitive answer, Attorney General William Barr said in a letter to Congress summarising Mueller s report. The special counsel does not exonerate Trump of obstructing justice, Barr said, and his report sets out evidence on both sides of the question. After consulting with other Justice Department officials, Barr said he and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein determined the evidence is not sufficient to establish that the president committed an obstruction of justice offense. Barr released a four-page summary of Mueller s report Sunday afternoon. Mueller wrapped up his investigation on Friday with no new indictments, bringing to a close a probe that has shadowed Trump
