US Special Counsel Robert Mueller has effectively cleared President Donald Trump and his 2016 campaign of collusion with Russian Federation.

Mueller's investigation into possible obstruction of justice could not clear Trump, according to a redacted version of the special counsel's report released Thursday, which provided new details of Trump's efforts to influence the investigation into his campaign and Russian Federation.

The video, attached to the tweet, is a painful look back for Romney and any Republican, followed by a painful look back for any Democrat tempted to gloat. But she also said the investigation was a "very thorough undertaking" that seems to have "changed very few minds in Washington", perhaps implying that the results speak for themselves. Nadler also has summoned Mueller to testify by May 23. "We're focused on getting the full un-redacted version of the report and its underlying documents - as well as hearing from Mueller".

The number of Americans who approve of President Trump dropped 3 percentage points - to the lowest level of the year - following the release of a special counsel report detailing Russian interference in the election, a Reuters/Ipsos poll said Friday.

Nadler said it was now up to Congress to investigate after the special counsel said it did not establish enough evidence to bring charges of criminal conspiracy, yet detailed 10 allegations of Trump's attempts to obstruct the Russian Federation investigation that left open whether Trump broke the law.

Iran's biggest oil customers are China and India, both of which have been lobbying for an extension to the sanction waivers. Since taking office, Trump has pursued a sanctions-heavy strategy aimed at undermining the Islamist leaders in Iran.

Mike Huckabee said Monday he was "sickened" to hear Sen. But it's time to move on, he said, issuing a warning about continuing to investigate Trump.

It's fair to say that the Mueller report did not knock down any partisan barriers.

Trump declared victory and exoneration after the report, and later labeled Mueller's work "total bulls**t". It now falls to Congress to determine the full scope of that alleged misconduct and to decide what steps we must take going forward'.

"We don't care what his taxes say or don't say".

Barr, working with Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, said there was no obstruction. "The investigation has not developed evidence that the participants in the meeting were familiar with the foreign-contribution ban or the application of federal law to the relevant factual context". "Any candidate in the whole world in America would take information", Giuliani said of Romney on CNN's "State of the Union".

Lee, who appeared on CBS' "Face the Nation" on Sunday was asked if he agreed with the rebuke from his fellow Utah Republican senator.
