Graham: Barr should testify publicly before Judiciary Committee
“The Special Counsel’s investigation did not find that the Trump campaign or anyone associated with it conspired or coordinated with Russia in its efforts to influence the 2016 U.S. presidential election,” Barr wrote in his letter to the House and Senate Judiciary committees.
The letter says that Mueller made no conclusion as to whether President Trump obstructed justice in the investigation into Russia’s election interference. But it also states that Barr and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, after reviewing Mueller’s findings, determined that they would not pursue an obstruction of justice charge — a decision likely to be fought along partisan lines in Congress.
“The Special Counsel states that ‘while this report does not conclude that the President committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him,’ ” Barr wrote.
