Attorney General William Barr originally submitted a 4-page summary of the report to Congress March 24, prompting some in the special counsel’s office to criticize Barr’s conclusions, The New York Times reported.

The Washington Post, following up on The Times story, reported “members of Mueller’s team have complained to close associates that the evidence they gathered on obstruction was alarming and significant.”

Responding to the reports from The Times and The Post, the DOJ said in a statement, “Given the extraordinary public interest in the matter, the Attorney General decided to release the report’s bottom-line findings and his conclusions immediately — without attempting to summarize the report — with the understanding that the report itself would be released after the redaction process,” according to CBS News.

The letter from Barr said the investigation did not find evidence that the Trump campaign conspired with Russia in the 2016 election. “Barr wrote Mueller did not have sufficient evidence to establish obstruction of justice, but Barr quoted Mueller as saying that the special counsel also did not exonerate the President,” CNN said.

“The letter notes Mueller found evidence on both sides of the obstruction issue, a strong signal that there is information that was not positive for the President,” according to CNN.

President Trump delivered short remarks at the Lincoln Day Dinner on March 22, at the President’s Mar-a-Lago club in Palm Beach, Florida, shortly after Attorney General William Barr confirmed Special Counsel Robert Mueller had completed his report.



On March 24, 2019 President Trump responded to the release of findings from Robert Mueller's report as "a complete takedown that failed." No collusion with Russia was found in Mueller's investigation, but it also did not exonerate Trump.
