Mueller Finds Trump Tried to Control Investigation, Reveals New Depth of Campaign Links to Russia
Photo Illustration by The Daily Beast/Bloomberg/GettySpecial Counsel Robert Mueller found that President Trump tried to control the investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 election and encouraged witnesses not to cooperate—but Attorney General William Barr decided that didn't amount to a crime.

At a press conference ahead of the Mueller report's release, Barr went out of his way to explain how he disagreed with Mueller's legal theories and explain away Trump's behavior. Barr proclaimed Trump's innocence and justified the president's actions as the understandable behavior of a man persecuted by political opponents.

But when the redacted report was finally released to the public, it outlined 10 episodes of possible obstruction of justice by Trump, including: ordering James Comey to drop the FBI investigation into national security advisor Michael Flynn; directing the White House counsel to fire Mueller; dictating a message to Attorney General Jeff Sessions to limit the Mueller probe; telling witnesses publicly not to cooperate; having Cohen not contradict him in congressional testimony about Trump Tower Moscow; trying to hide emails exposing Donald Trump Jr.'s meeting with Russians for "dirt" on Hillary Clinton.

Mueller Report Speed Read: Trump Encouraged Witnesses ‘Not to Cooperate'
Saul Loeb/GettyNearly two years after the appointment of Robert Mueller as special counsel, Attorney General William Barr has submitted a 448-page report to Congress penned by Mueller and a team of investigators detailing Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election in support of President Donald Trump, as well as ten instances of potential obstruction of justice on the part of the president.

According to the report, based on hundreds witness interviews and the examination of thousands of documents furnished by the White House and the Trump campaign, the president waged a public and private campaign to discourage potential witnesses from cooperating with the investigation, and privately attempted to "control" the investigation as it delved into the conduct of himself and his closest advisors during and after the presidential campaign.

In previewing the report before its release to the American public, Barr told reporters on Thursday that while the investigation did not establish a conspiracy between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin to interfere in the election, investigators detailed ten "episodes" in which legal arguments could be supported alleging that Trump engaged in obstruction—a potentially impeachable offense.
