(Mar. 24, 2019, 2:25 p.m.) -- As flashed on front page and Facebook page, U.S. Attorney General William Barr has summarized the findings of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into alleged Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. Presidential election. "The Special Counsel did not find that the Trump campaign, or anyone associated with it, conspired or coordinated with the Russian government" in its efforts to influence the 2016 presidential election.

However, the Special Counsel has left for the Attorney General's office to decide based on evidence -- some of which the Attorney General said can't immediately be released because it's based on Grand Jury proceedings -- to decide whether the President committed obstruction of justice crimes during the Special Counsel's investigation. Special Counsel Mueller's report stated: "[W]hile this report does not conclude that the President committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him."
