But the summary from the attorney general does not provide the "total exoneration" the administration has claimed.

Trump said Monday that it is up to Barr to decide whether the report will be released to the public, adding that he isn't thinking about pardoning anyone sentenced during the inquiry.

Meanwhile, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell blocked a vote on a nonbinding resolution to release the special counsel's full report, although President Trump declared it "wouldn't bother [him] at all" if the report was made public.

Trump and his allies appeared jubilant after Barr said, in a letter released to Congress and made public on March 24, that Mueller's report states that the probe "did not establish that members" of Trump's campaign "conspired or coordinated with the Russian government in its election interference activities".

On Monday's Late Show broadcast, Colbert bemoaned the "anticlimactic" results of Mueller's investigation, calling his report "worse than the finale of Lost".

They also want to begin receiving the underlying evidence the same day.

The Mueller investigation had cast a cloud over Trump's presidency but he has declared himself fully exonerated, despite what Barr's summary said on the obstruction of justice issue.

Juventus reportedly keen on Raphael Varane signing — Real Madrid
Despite the return of Zidane at Real Madrid , Kroos has still been linked with a possible move away from the club. Madrid are said to be demanding £50 million for the midfielder who is still under contract until 2022.

We also can not forget that just a year ago, Barr wrote a memo to top Justice Department officials, saying he believed an obstruction case against Trump was "fatally misconceived", which makes it even more urgent that Congress and the American people understand Mueller's findings from the report itself. Rather than release the report, Attorney General Barr delivered a letter to Congress summarizing his conclusions.

Mr Trump vehemently denied wrongdoing, accusing the Democrats and their supporters in the media of being on a witch-hunt.

No one outside the Justice Department has yet seen the report, including the White House. But the probe left unresolved the question of whether Trump engaged in obstruction of justice. "Many of them you know who they are".

"Was the counterintelligence investigation a back door way of spying on Trump?"

Barr's summary noted that Mueller had 19 lawyers and 40 FBI agents working with him on the investigation, issued more than 2,800 subpoenas, talked to about 500 witnesses and carried out almost 500 search warrants. They just used it as an excuse. "And didn't let him know or your voters in SC know that you were the one that told John McCain to pass the dossier on to the Federal Bureau of Investigation".

Graham, who spent the weekend with Trump in Florida, said his committee will probe the actions of the Justice Department. "Whether or not it's illegal, I don't yet know so I am going to get answers to this", Graham also said. The South Carolina Republican also had a warning for Trump using his pardon power to help those who were ensnared by Mueller's investigation.
