Robert Mueller’s Investigation Comes to an End

Special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation has come to an end and his report states that neither Donald Trump’s campaign nor his associates conspired with Russia, according to Attorney General William Barr. CNN reports, “Mueller’s investigation of whether the President committed obstruction of justice did not conclude the President committed a crime, but it also ‘does not exonerate him,’ Barr quoted from Mueller’s report.” Trump’s presidency is no longer directly under threat from the special counsel investigation after nearly two years, though he still faces several other open investigations.
