“People shouldn’t be taking victory laps or jumping off bridges” because Mueller ended his investigation without recommending further indictments, Bharara said on CNN’s “State of the Union.”

Bharara, who served as U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York before being fired by the president, reminded host Dana Bash that state and federal investigations into matters such as Trump’s inaugural committee and charitable foundation remain open.

The Southern District of New York, Bharara noted, “did not have the narrow mission that the special counsel had.”

“They’re aggressive and tough and independent and fair and apolitical, and if there’s things that they think are worth pursuing and charging, they will do so,” Bharara said.

However, the lack of further indictments from the special counsel’s office “means you’re not going to see an American charged in some form of conspiracy, otherwise known as collusion…to hack or interfere with the election in this investigation,” Bharara said.
