SALT LAKE CITY — Special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation did not find any evidence that President Donald Trump’s campaign “conspired or coordinated” with Russia to influence the 2016 presidential election, the Justice Department said Sunday, according to the Associated Press.

Attorney General William Barr wrote in a four-page letter to Congress that quoted Mueller’s report that said it “does not exonerate” the president on obstruction. But, Barr wrote, the report “sets out evidence on both sides of the question.”
Trump, who was in Florida at the time of Barr’s letter, celebrated and said “there was no collusion.” He said the report showed there was no obstruction.
