Mueller questioned by TV journalist over details of report

Special counsel Robert Mueller was caught on camera for the first time following the release of his bombshell report into Russian election interference and allegations of collusion between President Trump's campaign and Moscow.

Captured by an MSNBC camera crew on the street on Sunday morning, Mueller declined to comment when asked about details regarding his report, in which he concluded there was no evidence of conspiracy between the Trump campaign and the Russians. 

Multiple reporters lobbed questions at Mueller as he got into his car on Easter Sunday, but the former FBI director simply said "no comment."

An MSNBC reporter asked if Mueller would "testify before Congress" and whether Trump would be indicted if he were "anyone but the president."

Mueller walked around his car to get his keys and entered the vehicle without saying anything else.

The special counsel submitted his report to the Department of Justice last month. The DOJ then released his report to the public this Thursday after redacting several portions of it.

The probe additionally listed several potential cases of obstruction of justice, but did not make a final determination on that issue.

Attorney General William Barr and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein determined last month that there was insufficient evidence to charge Trump with obstruction.
