The special counsel Robert Mueller is not recommending any further indictments in his final report on Russian interference in the 2016 election.
A senior justice department official told multiple outlets that the final report, which Mueller submitted to Attorney General William Barr on Friday, does not contain any more indictments. So far, the Mueller team has indicted dozens of people as part of its probe, including Russian hackers and members of President Donald Trump’s campaign.
The submission of Mueller’s report to Barr concludes a nearly two-year investigation into Russian activity in the 2016 election and possible collusion between Moscow and the Trump campaign.
Barr will now write a summary of Muller’s findings and submit that report to Congress, which will then make that summary public.
Democrats in Congress are already calling on Barr to release the entirety of the report to the public.
