BREAKING: Robert Mueller's Russia Investigation is Officially Complete

This is a developing story. Return to this post for updates.


From Politico:

Special counsel Robert Mueller has concluded his investigation into whether the Trump campaign colluded with Russia during the 2016 election.

A Justice Department official said on Friday that Mueller had submitted a report detailing his findings. Attorney General William Barr and his team will now begin the process of reviewing the report and creating a summary document that will be sent to Congress — and perhaps publicly released.

Barr said that he may be able to advise congressional leaders of Mueller's "principle conclusions" as soon as this weekend.


From The Washington Post:

The Justice Department notified Congress late Friday that it had received Mueller’s report but did not describe its contents. Barr is expected to summarize the findings for lawmakers in coming days.

In a letter to the leaders of the House and Senate Judiciary committees, Barr wrote that Mueller “has concluded his investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 election and related matters.”

Barr wrote that Mueller submitted a report to him explaining his prosecution decisions. The attorney general told lawmakers he was “reviewing the report and anticipate that I may be in a position to advise you of the Special Counsel’s principal conclusions as soon as this weekend.”

The attorney general wrote he would consult with Deputy Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein and Mueller “to determine what other information from the report can be released to Congress and the public consistent with the law, including the Special Counsel regulations, and the Department’s long-standing practices and policies.”

Barr said there were no instances in the course of the investigation in which any of Mueller’s decisions were vetoed by his superiors at the Justice Department.

  1. Does Russian dressing go well on nothingburgers?

  2. Well CNN is gonna have to hire Alex Jones to find some more conspiracies to peddle.

  3. Judge Nap was so far off in his analysis of this entire Kafka-esque investigation.

  4. I'm totally astounded that anyone ever thought RussiaGate was anything but an enormous hoax. I thought they all knew it was a hoax but just pretended it was real for political power. But apparently much to my surprise, many people really believed it. And still believe despite Mueller's report
