Separately, Mueller did not bring a charge of obstruction of justice against the president, and Barr concluded that one was not warranted.

The White House has seized on the findings to argue they have exonerated Trump. White House officials have also gone on the attack against Democrats, saying they made baseless accusations against the president.

Hill told CNN that “everyone needs to kind of slow their roll” on drawing definitive conclusions from the summary of Mueller's report released by Barr.

With the investigation concluded, there are “so many issues that we’ve got to continue our investigations on,” Hill told CNN. “Each of our committees has been working on our own ends … we haven’t been waiting on the Mueller report to do our jobs.”
