Special Counsel Robert Mueller sent his report investigating Russia interference in the 2016 presidential election. The submission of the final report ends almost two years of investigation by the Mueller team.
The final report was sent to Attorney General William Barr on Friday.
The New York Times published Barr’s letter to Congress about the Mueller report.
Multiple news sources are reporting the report does not recommend any indictments and a summary of the report is expected to be released to Congress as soon as this weekend.
The news about no indictment finding is widely interpreted that Muller did not find evidence of collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign or the president.

Democrats are calling for the full report to be released to the public.
The finding of no collusion puts some Democrats in a bad position.
For example, California Democrat Representative Eric Swalwell assured the public that there was evidence of Russia collusion.
What makes you sure that there is collusion (between Trump campaign and Russians)?

Despite the no collusion result, Democrats are expected to continue to investigate President Trump.
