The Mueller reports, indictments and other court documents related to the Special counsel investigation have made public several storylines of problematic behavior during the 2016 presidential campaign, transition and first years of the Trump administration

The special counsel’s team did not accuse of Trump of crime but explained that doing so could ‘preempt constitutional processes for addressing presidential misconduct.’

Mueller did so even as he declined to make a traditional judgment about whether Trump committed a crime.


The special counsel did not find any of the contacts between Trump associates and Russians constituted a crime. But the episodes detailed in his report show that Trump aides declined to forcefully reject the Russian offers or report them to law enforcement.

The 448-page report reveals a vivid portrait of a president and his aides on the brink of obstructing justice.

The special counsel’s investigation shows the Trump campaign tried to turn Russia’s election interference to its advantage.
