Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election is now over.
Attorney General William Barr received the report Friday. On Sunday, Barr sent his “principle conclusions” to Congress in a four-page letter.
Barr wrote the Special Counsel did not find President Donald Trump’s presidential campaign conspired with Russia during the 2016 election.
Summarizing Mueller’s main conclusions, Barr said Mueller also didn’t have sufficient evidence to prosecute the president for obstruction of justice.
But he didn’t exonerate him.
Chelsea Helms, anchor of our sister station FOX24, spoke with local political analyst Hoyt Purvis about how this report will impact the 2020 presidential election.
“From day to day things happen that could completely change the situation so right now it’s a good time for Trump, there’s no question about that,” Purvis said.
Purvis also commented on the president’s reaction to the end of the investigation, as well as democrats demanding the report be made public.
