WASHINGTON (AP) Special counsel Robert Mueller found no evidence President Donald Trumps campaign conspired or coordinated with Russia to influence the 2016 presidential election but reached no conclusion on whether Trump obstructed justice. That brought a hearty claim of vindication from Trump but set the stage for new rounds of political and legal fighting.
The battle began Monday as White House aides and allies blanketed television news broadcasts to trumpet the findings and claim that Trump has been the victim in a probe that never should have started.
White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said Trump will let Attorney General William Barr decide whether the special counsels Russia report should be publicly released, though she adds that hes more than happy for any of this stuff to come out.
