U.S. Attorney General William Barr told reporters Thursday that the Mueller Report looking into Russian interference in the 2016 election found no collusion between then candidate Donald Trump's campaign and the Russians.
However, the report also noted 10 different instances during the more than two-year investigation by Special Counsel Robert Mueller that could be viewed as obstructing justice. Mueller left the determination of whether obstruction had been committed to the Department of Justice and Barr, along with his assistant attorney general.
Barr found no criminal intent behind the obstruction incidences, leading him to determine that no crime had been committed. He did say that Trump may have felt pressured by what he viewed as an unnecessarily damaging inquiry into his presidency, which led him to lash out and potentially obstruct justice.
A redacted version of the report is scheduled to be made public at 11 a.m. Thursday and relevant bipartisan congressional panels will receive a less redacted version of the report to review.
