Trump remains defiant as he awaits Mueller report

After an investigation that lasted almost two years, the special counsel has finally delivered his report to the Justice Department on Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election, and the possible involvement of Donald Trump's campaign.

Mr Mueller submitted the report to Attorney-General William Barr, the top United States law enforcement official, the department said.

Trump has said that the public should see Mueller's report, once it is released.

"The next steps are up to Attorney General Barr, and we look forward to the process taking its course", a White House statement read.

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. Just this month, a unanimous, bipartisan House of Representatives called for the report to be public. Also, he reportedly has examined whether Trump himself attempted to obstruct the investigation, including in comments made to Comey when he was still serving in his post.

Special counsel Robert Mueller is not recommending any further indictments in the Russian Federation investigation.

With no details released at this point, it's not known whether Mueller's report answers the core questions of his investigation: Did Trump's campaign collude with the Kremlin to sway the 2016 presidential election in favor of the celebrity businessman? "I'm not rooting for anything at all, except that the special counsel be permitted to finish his work, charge whatever cases warrant charging and report on his work".

Trump fired Flynn in February 2017 after it emerged that he had misled Vice President Mike Pence and the Federal Bureau of Investigation about his dealings with the then-Russian ambassador to the United States, Sergey Kislyak.

While Mueller's investigation is finished, the investigations into Trump, his business and his administration are far from over.

Mr Trump and other Republicans have repeatedly condemned the probe as a partisan "witch hunt".

"The country is eagerly awaiting the special counsel Robert Mueller's report".

In a joint statement, they said Barr must not give Trump, his lawyers or staff any "sneak preview" of the findings or evidence. "I mean, frankly, I told the House, if you want, let them see it". No president has every been removed from office via impeachment.
