"That was the heart of this investigation and director Mueller and his team did not conclude directly or indirectly that the Trump campaign helped Russia," he continued.
 
In a letter sent Sunday to the House and Senate Judiciary committees, Barr summarized the main conclusions of Mueller's final report following his investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election. 

“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,” the letter states.

Mueller also investigated whether Trump obstructed justice during the probe but did not make a determination as to whether Trump committed a crime, according to Barr's letter.

“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, referring to the issue of obstruction of justice allegations.
