Special Counsel Robert Mueller has submitted to Attorney General Bill Barr his long-awaited report on the investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential race and possible collusion with Trump associates — marking the end of the politically explosive probe and the beginning of a new battle over its contents and implications, Fox News reports.

Both Barr and Rosenstein have seen the report, according to a senior DOJ official. Further, AG Barr also informed Congress that Mueller’s investigation has ended. Barr notes that the DOJ never blocked Mueller from pursuing any avenue of the investigation whatsoever in a letter below.

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) was one of four lawmakers that Attorney General William Barr wrote to on Friday announcing the report’s submission. Barr also wrote to Feinstein, the top Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee, and the top Republican and Democrat on the House Judiciary panel.

Sen. Lindsey Graham said on Friday that he expects to be thoroughly briefed on special counsel Robert Mueller‘s report on his findings in the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election.

Mueller is “not recommending any further indictments,” a senior DOJ official told Fox News. (Continued Below)

Sen. Lindsey Graham released a statement after the report was sent to the Attorney General.

Graham said, “The Department of Justice has notified me and Ranking Member Feinstein that the Mueller Report has been turned over to Attorney General Barr. This notification indicates that Attorney General Barr will pursue as much transparency as possible.

“Importantly, the notification also indicates that there were no areas of disagreement between the Attorney General or the Acting Attorney General and Special Counsel Mueller regarding courses of action. I expect both Ranking Member Feinstein and I will be briefed more thoroughly about the report in the coming days. I will work with Ranking Member Feinstein and our House Judiciary Committee colleagues to ensure as much transparency as possible, consistent with the law.”

“I have always believed it was important that Mr. Mueller be allowed to do his job without interference, and that has been accomplished.” Graham concluded. (Continued Below)

Rep. Mark Meadows also commented and wrote on Twitter Friday, “The Mueller report delivery suggests no more indictments are coming from the Special Counsel. If that’s true, it would mean we just completed 2 years of investigating ‘Russian collusion’ without ONE collusion related indictment. Not even one. Why? Because there was no collusion.”

The media said for two years that President Trump colluded with Russia, that he was an “agent of Russia,” that he was “compromised,” etc… The fact that Mueller is done and is not charging anyone else shows that most of what the media said was a lie.

The media and Democrats lied to you.
