The much-anticipated Mueller report that arrived Friday means there won’t be any further prosecution by the special counsel, and there was no finding of collusion by President Donald Trump with Russia, according to Rep. Andy Biggs.
Biggs, a Republican and one of three Arizonans on the House Judiciary Committee that will scrutinize the report, told The Arizona Republic he welcomed the investigation’s end, but remained critical of a process he said went far afield of its legal charge.
Robert Mueller, the Justice Department’s special counsel, provided Attorney General William Barr with his report Friday on the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election and any obstruction of the probe by President Donald Trump or his administration.
Biggs said the Attorney General’s Office told him that he can expect a redacted version of the report by Monday.
“We’ve also been told there’s not going to be additional indictments, and also we’ve been told there’s no indication or evidence of the Trump campaign coordinating or conspiring or colluding — whatever words you choose — with the Russians to impact the 2016 election,” Biggs said.
