Trump responds to Mueller's report with tweet, declaring 'total EXONERATION'

Posted at 5:01 PM, Mar 24, 2019

U.S. President Donald Trump took to Twitter following Attorney General William Barr's letter summarizing Robert Mueller's investigation into the president.

Mueller did not find Trump's campaign or associates conspired with Russia, Barr said Sunday.

"No Collusion, No Obstruction, Complete and Total EXONERATION. KEEP AMERICA GREAT!" the president tweeted.

His statement was incorrect.

While Mueller did not have sufficient evidence to prosecute obstruction of justice, Barr wrote, he also did not exonerate the President.

"The special counsel's investigation did not find that the Trump campaign or anyone associated with it conspired or coordinated with Russia in its efforts to influence the 2016 U.S. Presidential Election," the four-page letter sent to Congress states.

Barr and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein made the determination that the evidence was "not sufficient" to support a prosecution of the President for obstruction of justice.
