Donald Trump says he's 'having a good day' following Mueller report release

The Mueller report has been released, with 400 pages of slightly redacted material detailing special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election.

While attorney general William Barr has said that the report found no evidence of collusion between Donald Trump's campaign and Russia in that effort, plenty of questions remain.

Beyond collusion, the investigation looked into whether the president sought to obstruct justice by firing former FBI James Comey over his investigation into Russian meddling — a firing that spurred the creation of the Mueller investigation itself.

The report was delivered to Congress on Thursday morning shortly after Mr Barr conducted a press conference in Washington, where he doubled down on his decision to declare that there was insufficient evidence of that obstruction. That decision came even though he said the report found ten potential instances where obstruction occurred.

While the Mueller report made available publicly has been redacted for various reasons, Mr Barr said on Thursday that he would make an un-redacted version of the report available to Congress.

The redacted version, he said, will have notes indicating why information was kept back. But, he also said that the White House did not assert executive privilege.
