Insufficient evidence that Trump’s campaign conspired with the Russians to beat Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election.
The conclusion from Attorney General William Barr reached in a summary of the report put together by Special counsel Robert Mueller, which can be viewed here.

No criminal charges laid by The Justice Department and the Special Counsel’s Office against the president or his family members and no charges of collusion related to the election.
But when it came to obstruction of justice, Mueller explicitly did not fully absolve the president.
William Barr wrote that Special counsel Robert Mueller “sets out evidence on both sides of the question” of obstruction of justice.
In other words, Mueller left open the possibility that Trump obstructed justice.
The Democrats have demanded to see the full Mueller report and insisted that even the summary by the president’s attorney general hardly put him in the clear.
In light of the very concerning discrepancies and final decision making at the Justice Department following the Special Counsel report, where Mueller did not exonerate the President, we will be calling Attorney General Barr in to testify before @HouseJudiciary in the near future.— (((Rep.

The investigation has cost millions of dollars, spanned 674 days, hundreds of interviews, thousands of documents and criminal charges against 34 individuals.
Mueller will not recommend any further indictments.
