Attorney General William Barr told reporters that Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation “did not establish that members of the Trump campaign, conspired or coordinated with the Russian government in their election interference activities” during a press conference on Thursday.

“I’d also like to thank Special Counsel Robert Mueller for his service and the thoroughness of his investigation, particularly his work exposing the nature of Russia’s attempts to interfere in our electoral process,” Barr said. “As you know, one of the primary purposes of the special counsel’s investigation was to determine whether President Trump’s campaign or any individual associated with it conspired or coordinated with the Russian government to interfere in the 2016 election.”

“Volume one of the special counsel’s report describes the results of that investigation. As you will see, the special counsel’s report states that his ‘investigation did not establish that members of the Trump campaign, conspired or coordinated with the Russian government in their election interference activities,'” Barr continued.

Barr then added that Mueller’s report makes clear that the Russian government sought to interfere in the American election.

“But thanks to the special counsel’s thorough investigation, we now know that the Russian operatives that purported these schemes did not have the cooperation of President Trump or the Trump campaign, or the knowing assistance of any other American for that matter. That is something that all Americans can and should be grateful to have confirmed,” Barr said.
