Welcome back to the Giannini Politics Update! Today, the topic of discussion is the investigation constructed by special counsel Robert Mueller.
The Special Counsel Investigation, also known as the Mueller investigation, was a United States Law Enforcement Investigation of any attempts by the Russian Government to influence or interfere with the U.S. Presidential Election. The investigation’s purview included the allegation that there was association or coordination between Donald Trump's 2016 presidential campaign and the Russian government, and was led by special counsel Robert Mueller. The general results of the investigation were explained by Attorney General William Barr who told Congress that Mueller's office didn't establish a conspiracy between Trump's campaign and Russian interference in the 2016 election, nor did it establish that Trump obstructed justice according to a summary of the investigation submitted by Barr. He assessed the results of the investigation further and in more detail via a 400-page document written to Congress. Although Barr stated that he detected no interference in the election, in a recent testimony before Congress, Barr said that the U.S. government spied on the Trump campaign, and that he would investigate further violation of any rules. This means that Barr will analyze possible contraventions by American intelligence agencies. Barr has been one of the few people who has had access to the results of the investigation. As a result, knowledge of the general public is based on Barr's summary.
