CNN’s Toobin: ‘Total vindication of the president’ on collusion
CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin said Sunday that President Trump has been vindicated on “the issue of collusion” after Attorney General William Barr said in a letter to Congress that special counsel Robert Mueller did not find evidence that the Trump campaign coordinated with Russia to interfere with 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.
