Robert Mueller sends Russian Federation investigation report to U.S. attorney general

April FrancisMar 23, 2019

But Comey wrote: "I have no idea whether the special counsel will conclude that Mr Trump knowingly conspired with the Russians in connection with the 2016 election or that he obstructed justice with the required corrupt intent".

The regulations state that when an investigation is conducted a special counsel must provide the attorney general a "confidential report" explaining why particular individuals were or were not charged.

In a letter to Congress, Mr Barr said he may be able to report back the principal conclusions by the weekend.

It will now be up to Bill Barr, the U.S. attorney general, to decide how much of the report to release to Congress and the public.

First published March 22 at 2:33 p.m. PT. Update, 2:53 p.m.: Adds additional information.

Robert Mueller, as FBI director, testifies before a House Judiciary Committee hearing on Federal Bureau of Investigation oversight on Capitol Hill in Washington June 13, 2013. But the White House has insisted throughout that the president would not be implicated and, in Trump's words, that the investigation was a "witch hunt".

MSNBC's Katy Tur dismissed the upcoming results of Robert Mueller's investigation during her Thursday show because, according to her, the special counsel has already found "quite a bit" of incriminating evidence against President Donald Trump. He wrote that he was reviewing the report to determine what could be shared with the public and the committee.

Church leaders react with shock after NZ mosque shootings
New Zealand police have arrested three people in connection with the attacks including one man who has been charged with murder . The deadliest attack occurred at the Al Noor mosque in central Christchurch at about 1:45 p.m., when 41 people were killed.

Mueller's investigation, which took almost two years, has provoked President Donald Trump's frequent ire and brought down some of the president's top men.

Earlier this month, the House voted unanimously for a non-binding resolution to make the report's findings public.

This completes the Mueller investigation, though not its outgrowth in the office of the USA attorney for the Southern District of NY.

In appointing Danforth, Attorney General Janet Reno specifically directed him to draft a report for public release on his findings, which he did.

It's also not clear what Mueller uncovered about Trump's involvement or advance knowledge, if any, of WikiLeaks release of damaging information about Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign.

USA intelligence agencies have concluded that Moscow meddled in the election with a campaign of email hacking and online propaganda aimed at sowing discord in the United States, hurting Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton and helping Trump. To announce charges against Russian operatives on two separate occasions in 2018, Mueller relied on Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who appointed Mueller in 2017 and oversaw much of his work. He has pleaded not guilty and is awaiting trial.

Shortly before the announcement Mr Trump had intensified his attacks on Mr Mueller's investigation.
