Pres. Trump didn't collude with the Russians to win the 2016 election. That's according to the long-awaited report by special counsel Robert Mueller. The investigation lasted two years and involved more than 500 search warrants, 2,800 subpoenas, and interviews with roughly 500 witnesses. Mueller conveyed his findings to Attorney General William Barr who summarized the report by saying “[T]he investigation did not establish that members of the Trump Campaign conspired or coordinated with the Russian government in its election interference activities.” This is a major victory for Pres. Trump who maintained his innocence from the beginning. Kentucky Senator Rand Paul called the investigation a colossal waste of time. Yet, top Congressional Democrats say they will pursue their own investigation regardless of the Mueller report. Stay tuned.
