US House committee chairs request Mueller's full report on Russian Federation probe

Steve Bannon

Contrary to President Trump's claim that the Mueller report "totally exonerates" him, the Mueller report states that "while this report does not conclude that the President committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him".

Tweeted Trump: "The Mainstream Media is under fire and being scorned all over the World as being corrupt and FAKE". They say Trump directed his personal lawyer Michael Cohen to make illegal hush-money payments to two women as a way to quash potential sex scandals during the campaign.

Mr Trump, of the Republican Party, was accused by the opposition Democratic Party of enlisting Russian hackers and other criminals to manipulate the outcome of the November 2016 presidential elections in his favour.

The Democratic leaders of six committees in the U.S. House of Representatives are demanding that Congress have the full report by special counsel Robert Mueller "no later" than April 2.

Atiku Abubakar has hailed President Donald Trump for his breakthrough in the extensive investigation of alleged Russian collusion in the 2016 elections.

The information is "urgently needed by our committees to perform their duties under the Constitution", they wrote, implying that the information would be subpoenaed if it is not provided by the deadline.

Trump said on March 25 that it was up to Barr to decide whether detailed findings from Mueller's report would be made public.

Even as Mueller left open questions about possible obstruction of justice, his report that the investigation "did not establish" coordination between the Trump campaign and Russia's interference in the 2016 election virtually ensures that voters in 2020 - not any legal process before then - will deliver the decisive verdict on Trump's tumultuous presidency.

Trump called the revelations "a complete and total exoneration" and blasted Mueller's probe as "an illegal takedown that failed".

Cummings said he believed that "what Mueller was saying by not making a finding with regard to obstruction was that he wanted the Congress to take a look at it" and see if it can reach a decision.

Mr Mueller, however, said he was unable to clear Mr Trump of obstruction of justice, even as he was unable to indict him of committing such offence, either.

Trump said on Monday that "it wouldn't bother me at all" if the report were released but that it was up to Barr.

For several months, there were reports that Mr Trump was on the verge of firing Mr Mueller after the top detective closed in on several of Mr Trump's allies. "And if not, why have so many members of Trump's campaign plead guilty to lying about meeting with the smoke monster?"
