Attorney General William Barr sent a letter to Congress on Sunday detailing the top-level conclusions of Mueller's investigation.

The letter said the investigation did not uncover evidence that the Trump campaign conspired or coordinated with the Russian government to interfere in the 2016 election.

It also stated that Mueller did not reach a conclusion as to whether Trump had obstructed justice while president, but that his report “sets out evidence on both sides of the question and leaves unresolved what the Special Counsel views as ‘difficult issues’ of law and fact concerning whether the President’s actions and intent could be viewed as obstruction.”

Since gaining a majority in the House with the 2018 midterm elections, congressional Democrats have opened sweeping investigations into Trump.

The Oversight committee in particular has launched several, including one into Trump's communications with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
