A redacted version Mueller's report, which was released Thursday, detailed several cases in which Trump potentially obstructed justice.

But Mueller wrote that Trump's efforts "were mostly unsuccessful" in influencing the probe because those around him "declined to carry out orders or accede to his requests."

“The President’s efforts to influence the investigation were mostly unsuccessful, but that is largely because the persons who surrounded the President declined to carry out orders or accede to his requests," the report reads.

In one instance, Trump in 2017 ordered then-White House counsel Don McGahn to remove Mueller. McGahn refused, according to the report, which states that he decided "that he would resign rather than trigger what he regarded as a potential Saturday Night Massacre."
