This is stated in a letter to US Attorney General William Barr, sent to the US Congress, with a brief summary of the findings of the Muller report, writes "Rain".

"The investigation did not establish that the participants in the Trump campaign or anyone associated with them conspired or coordinated with Russia in its attempts to influence the election of the US president in 2016," the report says.

In addition, Barr writes, he and his deputy, Rod Rosenstein, “concluded that the evidence obtained during the investigation of the special prosecutor was not enough to establish that the president had committed a crime that impedes the administration of justice.”

At the same time, Barr and Rosenstein say, the headquarters of the president received offers from people connected with Moscow. The letter also emphasizes that Russia still tried to influence the elections with the help of cyber attacks.

The special prosecutor of the United States found several cases of interference in the elections of Russia, the document says. We are talking about the Internet Research Agency (which is also called the “troll factory”). Muller believes that it spread misinformation on social networks in order to disunite US citizens and influence the outcome of the vote. However, the special prosecutor did not find any links between the agency and the Trump election campaign. RBC.

At the same time, Muller came to the conclusion that the email of Hillary Clinton, Trump's opponent in the elections, was hacked by hackers linked to Russia. However, the Special Prosecutor did not find a connection between them and the Trump team.

According to the US Attorney General, from the report Muller does not imply that Trump obstructed justice and thereby committed a crime. Muller refused to evaluate the president’s actions, calling it a “difficult question”, thus deciding whether Trump interfered with the investigation would be the Attorney General.

In a letter to Congress, Barr explained that he could not publish the full version of the Muller report, since this would be contrary to the law on criminal procedure.

White House Reaction

Trump spokeswoman Sarah Sanders called the findings of the Department of Justice "the absolute and complete justification of the US president."

Trump also stressed on his Twitter that he was completely acquitted, and said that he would "support America great."

The reaction of Russia

The Kremlin is not yet ready to comment on the findings of the investigation of Muller, because they have not yet become acquainted with its results.

This was stated by the press secretary of the President of Russia Dmitry Peskov, writes RIA News.

“We haven't seen them yet,” Peskov said.

Why was the investigation of Muller started

In May 2017, Rosenstein appointed Muller to investigate possible cooperation between Trump's headquarters and the Russians in order to influence the US presidential election in 2016.

Muller took over the FBI's counterintelligence investigation, which began in the summer of 2016, after agents learned that Trump's staff member George Papadopoulos had bragged to an Australian diplomat that Russia had received information that would discredit Hillary Clinton, who was Trump's opponent in the 2016 election of the year, and made public her. This statement acquired a new meaning a few months later, when investigators determined that the Russian special services had hacked the server of the National Democratic Committee and stole the correspondence from there.

Rosenstein said that he was not sure that any laws had been violated, but noted that the unique circumstances required an independent thorough investigation, which is why Muller was appointed.
