U.S. Vice President Mike Pence celebrates what he called a "total vindication" after Attorney General Bill Barr released his summary of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's findings that concluded there was no collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia in the 2016 election.
ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) U.S. Vice President Mike Pence, speaking to the American Israeli Political Action Conference in Washington, D.C., on Monday, celebrated what he called a "total vindication" for President Donald Trump, a day after the top U.S. law enforcement official said Trump had been cleared of any conspiracy with Moscow.
Special Counsel Robert Mueller wrapped up his investigation after nearly two years on Friday and submitted his findings to Attorney General William Barr, who on Sunday released a four-page summary saying there was no evidence of criminal conspiracy between Trump's 2016 presidential campaign and Russia in the 2016 election.
Mueller neither accused Trump of obstruction of justice in trying to impede the investigation nor exonerated him of obstruction, according to Barr's summary.
Barr did said he and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein had concluded the evidence from the investigation "is not sufficient to establish that the president committed an obstruction-of-justice offense."
