Robert Mueller officially concluded his almost two-year special counsel investigation into possible ties between the Trump campaign and Russian officials in the hacking of the 2016 Presidential Election. The report was submitted to Attorney General William Barr on Sunday. In return, Barr, to some protest, released a four-page long list of conclusions from the report rather than sections of the actual report.
According to Barr, the Mueller Investigation spanned 19 lawyers, 40 FBI agents, 500 search warrants, and another 500 witnesses interviewed. Despite not filing an expense report, the grand total cost of the investigation is thought to be around $25 million. The most notable findings over the course of the investigation include arrests and charges against former Trump campaign chair Paul Manafort, former lawyer Micheal Cohen, and former aide Roger Stone.
Despite these findings, the biggest question that was circulating prior to the report being submitted was whether President Donald Trump would be found guilty or not, in which the answer is no. In a meeting three weeks prior to the submission, Mueller told Attorney General Barr and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein that he will not make a decision on possible collusion between Trump and Russia. Furthermore, Barr in the four-page release said that no more indictments would be made.
