Conway's husband calls for Congress to remove 'cancer' of Trump

Rep. Maloney says Trump's conduct in Mueller probe 'appalling' Robert Mueller's report details how Australia sparked FBI investigation

Below are some of the big sections and lessons from the report.

At a news conference before the report was released, Barr suggested it was the former. But that didn't stop Trump from taking a public victory lap, declaring at a White House event that he was having "a good day".

Numerous contacts in the report were already known.

Papadopoulos was one of Mueller's first prosecutions. In the report, Mueller went out of his way to debunk Barr's unconventional view that the Constitution "categorically and permanently immunize [d]" Trump from prosecution for abusing his power to undermine the investigation.

The president's actions and intent "presents hard issues that prevent us from conclusively determining that no criminal conduct occurred", Mueller wrote. "Accordingly, while this report does not conclude that the President committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him". It lays out ample evidence that Trump obstructed justice.

Barr responded that he had a private conversation with Mueller, who told him that he "was not saying that but for the OLC opinion, he would have found a crime".

The meeting was set up after the advisers were promised "dirt" on Hillary Clinton, Trump's Democratic challenger for president.

Harris, the California Senator with Indian and Jamaican descent, said that the briefing had been "filled with political spin and propaganda" that "should concern us all".

Trump first learned that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein appointed Mueller as special counsel from then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions during a meeting to interview candidates for Federal Bureau of Investigation director in May 2017, the report said.

Republican Congressmember Cathy McMorris Rodgers did not make any definitive statement on the report, other than to say she is glad that it has been released. Then: "Call me back when you do it". "I think you will probably be rewarded mightily by our press". Schrier said that she is not taking Barr's conclusion - that Trump did not collude with Russian Federation - as the truth just yet.

Again, none of these apparently rose to a criminal level.

Federal prosecutors in NY are also investigating Trump's inaugural committee, which raised an unprecedented $107 million to celebrate his election. Trump - or rather his attorneys - told Mueller that the comment was made "in jest and sarcastically". Oftentimes, they simply didn't follow through. Three days later, Trump called White House counsel Donald McGahn twice, telling him both times to get Mueller removed.

When Comey testified in front of Congress in March 2017 about the FBI's ongoing investigation into the 2016 campaign, he revealed that his agents had been looking into "any links between individuals associated with the Trump campaign and the Russian government". (This is the episode that Flynn pleaded guilty to lying about.) But McFarland didn't know that to be true, so she didn't do it.

Paul Manafort, Mr. Trump's campaign chair, passed internal campaign polling data to and discussed election strategy with Konstantin Kilimnik, a Russian-Ukrainian associate suspected of being tied to the same spy agency that stole Democratic e-mails, Mr. Mueller found. Mr. Manafort and Mr. Kilimnik also talked about getting Mr. Trump to sign off on a plan to give Russia control of eastern Ukraine. They said the evidence should have given prosecutors a strong basis for bringing an obstruction case against Trump, but Mueller demurred because a longstanding Department of Justice policy against indicting a sitting president. The probe has spanned more than half of Trump's presidency without affecting his base. During the lunch, the president asked Christie if he could deliver a message to then-FBI Director James Comey.

Throughout Mueller's investigation, Trump and his allies were steadfast in their dispute of reporting pertaining to the probe, routinely lashing out at the journalists and news organizations behind the stories.
