Mueller concludes Russia probe, delivers report to AG Barr

WASHINGTON (AP) — Special counsel Robert Mueller has concluded his investigation into Russian election interference and possible coordination with associates of President Donald Trump.

The Justice Department says Mueller delivered his final report Friday to Attorney General William Barr, who is reviewing it.

Mueller's report, still confidential, sets the stage for big public fights to come. The next steps are up to Trump's attorney general, to Congress and, in all likelihood, federal courts.

It's not clear how much of the report will become public or provided to Congress. Barr has said he will write his own report summarizing Mueller's findings.

The nearly two-year probe has shadowed Trump's presidency and resulted in felony charges against 34 people including six people who served on Trump's campaign.

It has become clear that everyone knew that Trump did not collude with Russia when they began the investigation and that they only wanted the pretense of collusion so as to investigate EVERYTHING in the hopes of finding a "Manafort" type transgression. Leaks were provided to Yahoo News and Yahoo News published story was used to bolster the dossier as independent corroboration when, it fact, it was traced to a news organization that had been in contact with Steele, creating a high likelihood it was circular intelligence reporting. The planted story along with Brennan’s contribution that Trump hired prostitutes to urinate became evidence. Everyone who promoted the idea of spying on the Trump campaign knew that it was a pretense. Rather than investigate for a specific crime, Mueller has investigated people in search for ANY crime. Mueller found nothing so now Adam Schiff want to enter "a new phase". Elected politicians are too frightened of the intelligence apparatus to seek justice. If they can do this to the President, they reason, what all can they do to me?
